REVISIT - Frida Kahlo with Rebecca Milford

I've decided to give myself a wee Easter holiday this week and following on from International Women's month I have dipped into the podcast archive to revisit this brilliant episode all about Frida Kahlo with Rebecca Milford!

To remind you:

On today’s podcast Jo sits down with Rebecca Milford, founder of cosmic cures, about one of the 20th century’s most iconic figures - FRIDA KAHLO.

Frida Kahlo is a larger than life icon in today’s society, but throughout her life suffered not only immense pain due to an accident which happened to the artist in her youth, but was known as the wife of the famous Mexican mural painter, Diego Rivera, only really began receiving recognition in the few years before her death.

Known for her powerful self portraits Kahlo is now a force to be reckoned with in the history of art.

Join Jo and Rebecca as they discuss Frida’s works, her rocky relationship with her husband Diego, the illnesses that plagued her and her love of life.
