Frida never dared to paint an oil canvas of the accident. On September 17 of 1926, she remembered the incident with a drawing. We see her on the hospital bed of the Red Cross, completely bandaged. On the back, she depicts a building, maybe the Blue House, where she spent all that fisrt year, prostrated in bed. Finally, she draws the clash between the trolley and the bus, and all the wounded people.
