Frida Kahlo : retrospective by Frida Kahlo( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life and work of Frida Kahlo were inextricably intertwined. This beautiful monograph celebrates the artist while exploring the lesser-known aspects of her story. Reproductions of Kahlo's paintings are accompanied by a series of illuminating essays that explore the artist's private writings and the intense public interest in her life, the role of physical and mental suffering in the creative process, and the coded and double meanings hidden in so much of Kahlo's work. In addition, a photographic essay compiled by her grandniece, Cristina Kahlo, features images from the family's private collection. As an icon of female strength and suffering, Frida Kahlo has become something of an art world myth. This scholarly yet profoundly moving illustrated tribute to her life and work offers a measured perspective that rises above the noise of celebrity to discover the true artist and the truth of her art
Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection & 20th century Mexican art from the Stanley and Pearl Goodman Collection( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new survey of the masterworks of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, set against the backdrop of Mexican Modernism. Few artists have captured the public's imagination with the force of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Icons respectively of surrealism and the Mural Movement, their work reflected their immersion in indigenous Mexican culture while looking ahead to progressive ideals and wielding a defining influence on Mexican Modernism. Brought together for a unique exhibition at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, this catalog includes more than thirty masterpieces by Kahlo and Rivera from the renowned Gelman Foundation Collection in Mexico City, among them such iconic works as Kahlo's 'Autorretrato con Monos' (Self-Portrait with Monkeys) and 'Diego en Mi Pensamiento' (Diego on My Mind), and 'Rivera's Autorretrato' (Self-Portrait) and 'Retrato de Natasha Gelman' (Portrait of Natasha Gelman). Set in the broader context of the Mexican modernist movement, Kahlo's and Rivera's pieces are accompanied by works by such other masters as Jose Clemente Orozco, Rufino Tamayo, and Leonora Carrington. This book is being published to coincide with the exhibition Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection and Mexican Modernism from the Stanley and Pearl Goodman Collection, at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale. Exhibition: Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, USA (26.2.-31.5.2015)
Hidden Frida Kahlo : lost, destroyed or little-known works by Helga Prignitz-Poda( Book )

16 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this fascinating look at over 180 "hidden" images Helga Prignitz-Poda, one of the world's leading authorities on the Mexican artist, pulls back the curtain on masterpieces that rarely, if ever, see the inside of an exhibition or gallery. Illustrated with stunning reproductions of works that Prignitz- Poda has discovered over the course of her career, this book helps expand our knowledge and understanding of this hugely popular artist. Arranged chronologically, the works include those Kahlo completed in her youth, works from her travels to America, paintings she made as an instructor in Mexico City, and a number of still-lifes from the last phase of her career. From largely unknown images, such as embroidery stitched at the age of five and doodles on love letters to her boyfriend Alejandro, to well-known works such as 'My Birth' (1932), now owned by Madonna, and 'Remembrance of the Open Wound', which was destroyed in a fire, these "hidden" artworks create an invaluable resource for Frida Kahlo scholars and will be treasured by the painter's many fans
Frida Kahlo : the painter and her work by Helga Prignitz-Poda( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and German and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) left behind a slender oeuvre. It consists of 143 paintings that are also only small in size, rarely larger than 8 3/4 x 11 3/4 or 12 x 15 3/4 inches. Nevertheless, some of her pictures became icons of 20th century art, such as The Broken Column or The Wounded Deer." "In the 1970s, Frida Kahlo, who during her lifetime was already a champion of the new Mexico, was discovered by the women's movement, which served to make her oeuvre popular world-wide and decisively influenced how it was received. However, the commercial marketing of Frida Kahlo's works has now become so intense that it tends to obscure a clear view of her oeuvre. As a consequence, the present monograph returns to the roots, to 42 select masterpieces, reproduced life-size and in detail. They allow viewers to experience with their own eyes the painterly quality, the beauty and the wealth of details in her works, not to mention the abyss in which Frida Kahlo found herself."--BOOK JACKET
