Overview

Overview

Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) was a Mexican artist whose life was nearly as dramatic and fiery as her art. She endured a catastrophic set of physical calamities as a child and young woman, was an active member of the Communist Party, and survived a tempestuous marriage to the artist Diego Rivera. This book includes many photographs of her life alongside her extraordinary paintings, and presents commentary by leading Mexican art historians, stunning reproductions of her most seminal works — some never before reproduced, and nine gate-folds allowing the reader to examine in detail aspects of her larger works.

At last--vivid, full-color postcards featuring Frida Kahlo's most popular works in a high-quality, inexpensive collection. This compilation of Kahlo's most famous and haunting works was selected from her passionate self-portraits, exotic still-lifes, and semi-surreal scenes. 22 full-color postcards.

Meet the Author

Frida Kahlo lived fewer than 50 years, but hers was an intensely examined life, and one that enthusiasts all over the world are still poring over. As a child in the suburbs of Mexico City, Kahlo, born in 1907, survived polio. As a teenager already enrolled in premedical studies, her body was brought forcefully to her attention again by a bus accident whose physical repercussions would shape the rest of her days, crucially inform her artwork and eventually kill her. Kahlo was already a painter when she married the political muralist Diego Rivera at 22, a volatile pairing that survived much unrest and one divorce and remarriage. She had her first solo exhibition in 1938, at New Yorkis Julien Levy Gallery, and saw some growth in her career before her death in 1954, but nothing like the steady, exponential increase of interest and respect that has continued since. Exhibits, books and reproductions abound, and 2002 saw the release of a high-profile feature film about her life starring Salma Hayek.

Elizabeth Carpenter is a Guest Curator in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and a Curatorial Assistant at the Walker Art Center.

    You will not be disappointed.

    The film tells the true story of Frida Kahlo. The people who did not like her paintings will start to understand her emotions and pain. You will see the truth behind her paintings. The visual effects that are used for the movie will surprise you. Also these visual effects will let you travel and live with Frida Kahlo. Director Julie Taymor¿s pragmatism made the movie striking. Salma Hayek played Frida Kahlo by heart and became her spirit. Although not everything that happened to Kahlo was in the movie, so do not expect all details from her life. Don¿t forget she had a very colorful and full life for 47 years. If you like see and understand Kahlo's surreal world, run to the store and rent the movie now. You will not be disappointed.
