9781858944388: Frida Kahlo: Song of Herself

Frida Kahlo's extraordinary life has been well documented, but until now little has been known about the artist's thoughts on her internal and external reality. In "Song of Herself", Kahlo expert and child psychiatrist Salomon Grimberg introduces and contextualizes an intimate, deeply introspective interview that Kahlo gave towards the end of her life to her friend the psychologist Olga Campos for an unpublished book on the creative process. Kahlo comments directly and starkly as never before on her life, her loves and her art, and expresses her attitudes towards sexuality, her body, friendship, politics and death, among other personal concerns.The most revealing autobiographical text known on this singular woman, this startling interview is accompanied here by Campos' reflections on her relationship with Kahlo and a psychological assessment of Kahlo by Dr James Bridger Harris. The book is illustrated with selected photographs and works by Kahlo, including previously unseen and rarely seen drawings.

From School Library Journal:

Grimberg, a psychiatrist and art historian, has authored and edited several books and exhibition catalogs on the poignant life and works of Frida Kahlo. In these two recent books, Grimberg focuses both on Kahlo's creative process and on how her works, self-portraits and still lifes, complement each other and serve as windows to consider the artist and her other paintings. Song of Herself centers on a series of interviews between Kahlo and Olga Campos, a psychologist and Kahlo's friend; Kahlo's words have been grouped together to present her revealing musings on a variety of subjects, such as children, sexuality, politics, and her own body. Following the interviews are two brief sections, one that details the artist's medical history and the other, an assessment of the artist by a modern-day psychologist. In the landmark book Still Lifes, Grimberg critically examines each of Kahlo's documented still lifes (all 40 that are known are reproduced here), showing how they complement the self-portraits and reflect the character of the artist just as well. In addition to color reproductions of Kahlo's striking art, these two titles include black-and-white photographs of the artist. Offering original perspectives on Kahlo's life, art, and mind, Grimberg's books are recommended for academic and special libraries with art history, psychology, or gender studies collections.—Jennifer Pollock, Yale Ctr. for British Art, New Haven, CT
