Summary

Discover the life and work of Frida Kahlo in this introduction to the iconic Mexican artist.

Although her body of work is relatively small, Frida Kahlo has inspired adoration and admiration that few other artists have attained. This accessible and elegant book offers full page reproductions of a selection of her works, allowing for a broad appreciation of Kahlo's use of color, composition, and texture. The biographical text informs readers of her early career, when a bus accident left her bedridden and plagued by pain, but also afforded her the chance to discover herself through painting. It follows her life, her personal relationships, and her years in America. Eckhard Hollmann explores the many themes and images of Kahlo's work, from physical and emotional pain, to Mexican and indigenous folklore, to the flora and fauna of her beloved home. Never shying away from expressing her deepest fears and desires, championing the downtrodden with dignity and passion, Frida Kahlo remains an inspiration to any artist
aiming to be true to herself while struggling against personal and political limitation.
