Item description for Frida Kahlo (Living Art Series) by Claudia Bauer...
This engaging and accessible biography of Frida Kahlo uses gorgeous reproductions and an engaging design to describe the life, work, and legacy of an artistic superstar.
Frida Kahlo is one of the art world's most enigmatic figures. Beautiful, talented, tragic, and strong, she broke barriers as a woman and as an artist, and her story is irresistibly fascinating. This dynamically illustrated biography makes use of full-page reproductions, historical photographs, and the latest research to offer a balanced view of the artist and the impact her work has had in the decades since her death. The author introduces readers to the colorful world of Kahlo's Mexico; describes the misfortune that led to the emergence of her artistic sensibility; explores Kahlo's spiritual connection with her country's folk art and her forays into surrealism; and details her love affairs with intellectuals and other artists, specifically her soul mate Diego Rivera. A fascinating look at a brilliant artist, this volume will appeal to Kahlo's many ardent fans, as well as create new ones.
