1 of 8 The work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo forms the main summer exhibition at the Tate Modern in London. Among 80 of Kahlo's paintings on display are two donated by pop star Madonna, including this 1938 self-portrait.
2 of 8 Born in 1907, Kahlo's fame was overshadowed in her lifetime by that of her painter husband Diego Rivera, who appears in a number of her works. Their stormy marriage ended in divorce in 1939 before they remarried.
3 of 8 Kahlo's bold paintings and unflinching look at birth, frailty and death were rediscovered in the 1980s, with the Tate show forming the first major UK exhibition of her work for more than 20 years.
4 of 8 Kahlo herself was the subject of many of her works, including 1939's Las Dos Frid or The Two Fridas, as she attempted to make sense of her identity.
5 of 8 Kahlo began to paint in 1925 while recovering from a bus accident that left her permanently disabled. The constant pain she felt informed many of her works, such as La Columna Rota or The Broken Column.
6 of 8 She celebrated her ancestry, with Indian blood on her mother's side and Hungarian-Jewish stock on her father's, in paintings such as 1936's My Parents, My Grandparents and I.
7 of 8 The Tate Modern unveiled its Frida Kahlo season by encouraging children to colour in a giant poster of the late artist. Kahlo also became the subject of 2002 movie Frida, with Salma Hayek earning an Oscar nomination in the lead role.
8 of 8 Kahlo died at the age of 47 in 1954 and her work was subsequently displayed in her former home, the Blue House in Mexico. The Tate Modern exhibition continues until 9 October.
