In matters of style, this lady was exquisite even in her darkest hours.  Her life is a series of assertions in the lines of no fear, no regrets, no shame, and full ego.  Frida used self portraits to juxtapose a life of passion, tragedy, and pain using symbolism in the midst of a colorful and superbly expressive aesthetic.  I suspect she had no lines between her art and herself, no censorship at all.  Disclosure can be shocking, but she got a thrill out of pushing boundaries.  In as much as she could show us how she felt, being in her body or in her life was much more intense -she knew this and has made our grim reactions part of her canvas.
