Convergence Education in Art and Literature through Self-portraits
The purpose of this study is to suggest an example of convergence education of art and literature through self-portraits of Frida Kahlo and Yun Dong-Ju. They found their life’s purpose in painting and in writing poetry while they suffered from tremendous pains throughout their lifetime. They portray their pains as a fate that has to be endured as women and poets of a colonized land. They depict their figures with plural images which they derive from their struggle to explore their identities.
