Reviews - What do customers think about Frida Kahlo 1907-1954: Pain and Passion?

An excellent introduction  Apr 5, 2008
This book is an excellent introduction to the life and art of Frida Kahlo. It has many full color plates of her work and photographs of the artist as well. The text is an excellent abridgement of a colorful, complex life. I highly recommend this to all Frida fans both new and old.
A wonderful introduction to Kahlo (a review of the English translation)  Nov 9, 2007
If you saw the Selma Hayek movie on the life of Frida Kahlo and want to know a bit more, this is a wonderful introduction to her professional life. In fact, the movie and this book complement one another quite nicely, since the movie tended to focus on her personal life.

Andrea Kettenmann's book follows the life of Kahlo and does a great job of explaining the symbolism of Kahlo's work as it pertains to her personal life, her health setbacks and her political beliefs. There are 93 illustrations in this book - most of them are her paintings. She also includes a couple of photographs of Diego Rivera's works that included images of Kahlo.

This is a small book (less than 100 pages), but it packs a whole lot of punch and is very effective as an introduction to this fascinating artist.
Este libro es mi personal favorito  Sep 14, 2007
Este libro es un rápido sumario acerca de Frida, en formato "Readers Digest". Lo recomiendo encarecidamente para nuevos fans de Frida o los que ya lo han sido durante un tiempo y solo quieren un resumen sin especulaciones de su vida. Contiene información biográfica breve pero concisa, fotos antiguas en blanco y negro, ilustraciones a todo color y comentarios de sus pinturas. Es un gran y básico libro de referencia. Si solo va a comprar un libro de Frida Kahlo, elija este. No obstante después de leer este libro, lo dejará tan intrigado por la vida y arte de Frida, que querrá leer otros libros. Este libro es mi personal favorito.
TASHEN does it again  Sep 3, 2006
After watching the Bio-Pic "Frida" (2002), Director: Julie Taymor, based on the book "Frida : A Biography of Frida Kahlo by Hayden Herrera, I decided it wad time to read more of this Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) who married Diego Rivera and was an artist in her own write.

This book, "Frida Kahlo 1907-1954: Pain and Passion" by Andrea Kettenmann, Is a great and informative introduction to Kahlo, her art and the person behind the art. Not to sound shallow but the color reproductions and the photos are worth the purchase price on their own. However knowing what they are trying to portray always ads that extra meaning.

No matter what book or movie you buy this is an added must to your library and a different look at the life and times of Freda.
The Life of a Genius Painter In One Book  Dec 10, 2003
"Frida Kahlo 1907-1954: Pain And Passion" travels through her life and turbulances through her many paintings she drew throughout her life. This book is more than just her paintings. The auther shares the story of the inspiration of her every paintings. She shares everything in great detail that is highly accurate to Kahlo's living. Every page shows how Kahlo has inspired a generation of artists ranging beyond painting. It's great that the author wrote this book since many are unaware of Kahlo's work. Her words keep Kahlo's art and her life alive. This book is great for those looking to get inspired and to learn about this genius painter. Those wanting more should also watch the movie "Frida", starring Selma Hayak as Frida Kahlo.
