"Frida Kahlo in a hospital bed, drawing her corset w/ help of a mirror by Juan Guzmán, 1951. Kahlo wore plaster corsets for most of her life because her spine was too weak to support itself. She painted them naturally covering them with pasted scraps of fabric and drawings of tigers, monkeys, plumed birds, a blood-red hammer & sickle, & streetcars like the one whose handrail rammed through her body when she was eighteen years old. The corsets remain to this day in her famous blue house."
