To introduce self-portraiture to my students, we've been looking at one of
Frida Kahlo's self- portraits (the one with the thorns around her neck). It
has stimulated much conversation, but one question keeps coming up, and I
don't know the answer. How exactly did Frida die at age 47? If anyone
knows or could tell me where to look, please e-mail me. I know I could read
her biography, but I want to answer the kids' question asap.
