9780393312577: Frida Kahlo: Masterpieces (Schirmer's Visual Library)

Frida Kahlo died in 1954, but it wasn't until the early eighties that her colorful paintings began to draw the attention they have long deserved.

Kahlo's intense emotional works reflect her philosophy of nature and life, which was intertwined with the revival of Indian culture in the Mexico of her time. Wrote Diego Rivera of his wife: "She is the first woman in the history of art who took up, with absolute and ruthless sincerity, themes that exclusively concern women." The 43 plates here beautifully document how Frida Kahlo evolved into the great Mexican painter who today enjoys worldwide recognition. 43 color plates

From the Back Cover:

The Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) was first discovered in Europe in the early 1980s. Since then, interest in her strongly autobiographical work has been constantly growing.

About 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.
