Frida Kahlo considered her father as a great example and influence. She painted him in 1951 next to his camera. In the bottom, she wrote: "I painted my father Wilhelm Kahlo, Hungarian-German born, professional photographer and artist, with a generous, intelligent and fine character, brave because he suffered of epilepsy for 60 years but he never stopped working, and he fought against Hitler, with love, His daughter Frida Kahlo".
