Frida Kahlo (19071954)
A few days before she died she wrote in her diary:
I hope that the exit is joyful and never to return
If the pain and suffering is the main inspiration for artists than Frida Kahlo had more than enough inspiration to paint every single corner of the World.
Her life was painful, filled with suffering (physical and mental). Maybe that is why she painted very intense and beautiful paintings and is remembered as great Mexican painter.
