When Frida Kahlo was 18, she was taking a bus home. A trolley approached the bus & carried on, as if it had no breaks. Frida recalled, 'the train smashed the bus against the corner... it was silent... it harmed everybody, but me most of all'. Her spinal column was broken in 3 places, she had a triple fractured of the pelvis which had squared her body, through the hip & out the vagina. She wasn't expected to live. She hadn't considered painting until she became bed bound in 1926.
