The Mexican artist Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) brought many influences into her work, from folklore, politics and religion – but a central theme was her own body and the consequences of a terrible traumatic road traffic injury in her youth.

The following link is to a Tate Modern exhibition in 2005 of her work – a good introduction to her work and influences.
