The renowned Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, known for her bold, provocative self-portraits, suffered from multiple disabilities. Kahlo was diagnosed with polio at the age of six. Her polio caused her right leg to be thinner than her left. When she was 18, a trolley accident left her with a broken spine, a broken pelvis, and a pierced abdomen. After the tragic incident, she suffered from pains in the affected areas for the rest of her life. Evidently, that didn’t stop her from being one of the most well-known artists of the 20th century.
