Description:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), whose art mirrors the passion, tumult, & enormous strength of an anguished life, is one of the most charismatic figures of her time. Her paintings mingle Surrealism, folk art, & autobiography in a haunting & visceral style. The diary provides, in Kahlo's own words & pictures, the most personal & candid view possible of this remarkable artist. The diary reflects her stormy relationship with the Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, whom she married twice. Kahlo reputedly counted Leon Trotsky & the sculptor Isamu Noguchi among her lovers. Kahlo compiled her diary over the last 10 years of her life when back injuries had made her a semi-invalid. The heart of this book is the facsimile of the diary in its original size with its colorful images & writings. The facsimile is followed by an English transcription of the text with explanatory commentaries. An introduction by the world renowned writer Carlos Fuentes & an essay by art historian Sarah M. Lowe set the diary in the context of Kahlo's art & life as a whole. Order from Harry N. Abrams, 100 5th Ave., New York, NY 10011. 212-206- 7715. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Featuring more than three hundred illustrations, half of them in full color, a facsimile of the diary--never before published--of the twentieth-century Mexican artist in its original size is accompanied by an English transcription and commentary. BOMC Div.

Review: Frida Kahlo, one of the most dynamic figures of 20th-century art, has very nearly become a saint, so legendary is her tumultuous and tragic life. While there is no dearth of books about Kahlo and her work, none are as poignantly revealing as this diary, which includes her own words and pictures. We find the genesis of some of her most famous paintings, her love letters, and sketches of people she knew such as her husband, the Mexican mural painter Diego Rivera, and numerous studies for self-portraits. The most fascinating part of the book is the facsimile diary, in its exact size, reproduced here for the first time, with color illustrations. It is accompanied by an English translation with explanatory commentaries.
