Frida Kahlo is one of the twentieth century’s most commented-upon artists. In the painting The Broken Column, she created a work that communicates some of the pain she endured because of an initial injury and numerous later surgeries. What makes this artist’s personal story worth caring about for viewers of this work? Is it because of the intensity of her expression, or because she seems to speak for all women?
