"Mexican artist Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) is best known for her numerous self-portraits, which she filled with symbolic and surrealist elements, such as her own head on the body of a deer, skeletal figures, and fantastic and colorful birds and animals. As her work has been reassessed in recent years and she has come to be recognized as the groundbreaking figure that she was, her reputation has only grown. This book not only reproduces more than 200 of her paintings from every genre, including landscape and still life as well as the self-portraits, but also shows how the drama of her life informed her art. The catastrophic physical calamities she experienced - polio, a serious bus accident, miscarriages, and the lasting pain from her injuries - as well as the events of her fiery emotional life in her marriage to Diego Rivera, her affair with Leon Trotsky, and her sorrow at remaining childless are all represented literally or symbolically in her paintings. Her ability to endure and her willingness to reveal both her weakness and her strength in her work continue to inspire." "This book presents a full range of Kahlo's work, including a number of rarely seen paintings from private collections. Throughout, photographs of Kahlo's life - from childhood photos to portraits of the ailing but still vibrant artist taken near the end of her life - help us to understand the magnificent personality that created these masterful artworks. The paintings, including her most seminal works, are shown in stunningly lavish reproduction; nine gatefolds allow the reader to examine is detail aspects of her larger pieces. Essays by three esteemed art historians and Diego Rivera illuminate her work for readers. This volume will be a must-have for Kahlo devotees and for those just discovering her for the first time."--BOOK JACKET

Frida Kahlo by Gerry Souter( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Behind Frida Kahlo's portraits, lies the story of her life - a body of work drawn from cries of anger and fury, blended into a potent, and artistically exceptional, combination. At six years of age, she suffered a bout of polio and she was just eighteen when a terrible bus accident changed her life forever, leaving her handicapped and burdened with constant physical pain. But her explosive character, raw determination and hard work helped to shape her artistic talent. Frida Kahlo managed to forge a place for herself in the macho society of Mexico despite the double handicap of her crushed body and her sex. Alhough an obsessive womanizer, the great painter Diego Rivera was constantly by her side. She won him over with her charm, talent and intelligence, and Kahlo learnt to lean on the success of her companion in order to explore the world, thus creating her own legacy whilst finding herself surrounded by a close-knit group of friends, one of the most charistmatic of whom was the great Russian Revolutionary leader, Leon Trotsky. Her personal life was turbulent, as she frequently put her relationship with Diego to one side whilst she cultivated her own bisexual relationships. Despite this, Frida and Diego always managed to maintain their battered relationship. Frida Kahlo's work plays an important part in the artistic heritage of Mexico, her native country, with both its novelty and its multi-cultural values. The story and the paintings that Frida created reveal a rare and courageous account of a woman on a voyage of constant self discovery."--Publisher's website
