Frida Kahlo, famed for her unique art style that blends autobiographical elements with fantasy and realism, is a role model not just to creatives but to women everywhere. Nearly 64 years after her death, her works and attitudes have never been more sought after; she even has a Barbie doll made to resemble her image, though it was created to the chagrin of her family, who thought it did not represent her properly.

Kahlo suffered from chronic pain and turned to art to express herself in ways her body limited her. She famously said, “Feet, what do I need them for if I have wings to fly?”

Now, her legacy lives on and is ready for all to witness. Google’s Art and Culture app has partnered museums around the world to collect the most Frida Kahlo-related memorabilium. Aside from her iconic paintings, the virtual exhibition of 800 artifacts include lesser-known artworks, personal letters, journal entries, and more.

The ‘Faces of Frida’ isn’t just a gallery for free browsing, it delves deeper into the various facets of the artist and the meanings behind her works.
