Frida suffered from what we today would call fibromyalgia and SEID (formally Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) after a bus accident left her in severe chronic pain.  She continued to paint and even used her cast/coresets and after her leg was amputated, her artificial leg as her canvas.  To see the lost art of this amazing women is wonderful!
