Book Description

Behind Frida Kahlo’s portraits, lies the story of both her life and work. It is precisely this combination that draws the reader in. Frida’s work is a record of her life, and rarely can we learn so much about an artist from what she records inside the picture frame. Frida Kahlo truly is Mexico’s gift to the history of art. She was just eighteen years old 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. And although he was an obsessive womanizer, the great painter Diego Rivera was 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. Her personal life was turbulent, as she frequently left her relationship with Diego to one side whilst she cultivated her own bisexual relationships. Despite this, Frida and Diego managed to save their frayed relationship. The story and the paintings that Frida left us display a courageous account of a woman constantly on a search of self discovery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Minimalist Bio 25 May 2014
By Clarissa Simmens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave this book 5 stars because it fulfilled all my requirements: affordable price, Kahlo's artwork and a minimalist biography that showed compassion for the artist. I have read wordier library biographies with large pictures but this is a perfect edition to keep inside my Kindle along with the complete works of Shakespeare, Virginia Woolf and my own modest literary contributions!
5.0 out of 5 stars Kahlo 15 May 2013
By Martin P - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Kahlo's talent lies in her ability to represent the tumult of passions she felt in her life through those revealing brush strokes. Still as alluring now after 60 years or more, her paintings retain a hold on our imagination as they reveal Kahlo herself.

This book compiles a great collection of her artwork, including her revered self portraits, as well as sketches and still lifes. While the book is fairly small in format, the images take pride of place and the reproductions are of a very high standard. For an artist such as Kahlo as it seems impossible to disassociate the artist from her work, and in this sense the text and biographical details enhanced my appreciation of her paintings.

For such a reasonably priced art book I was pleased with both the print quality and content and I would definitely recommend to fans of Kahlo's work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kahlo 8 May 2014
By Martin Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the story but I think there was much more to Frida Kahlo's emotional and mental issues than are addressed here
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book to Review with Art Students in Elementary grades. 25 July 2013

I thought it was an excellent way to engage students in the study of art and artists and especially how art helps one overcome tribulations in life.
