Item description for Frida Kahlo: Portraits 0f An Icon by Frida Kahlo & Margaret Hooks...

Ms. Hooks' interest in Frida Kahlo began in 1975, when she first visited the artist's Casa Azul home and became acquainted with her life and work. Ms. Hooks lived many years in Mexico and is an authority on Latin American photography and the Mexican artistic milieu of the 1920s and 1930s.
Except where indicated, these portraits are from the collection of gallerist and specialist in Latin American photographs, Spencer Throckmorton. This dynamic collection was initiated more than two decades ago and includes more than one hundred images of Frida Kahlo, many of them unique and published here for the first time.

More About Frida Kahlo & Margaret Hooks

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Frida Kahlo lived fewer than 50 years, but hers was an intensely examined life, and one that enthusiasts all over the world are still poring over. As a child in the suburbs of Mexico City, Kahlo, born in 1907, survived polio. As a teenager already enrolled in premedical studies, her body was brought forcefully to her attention again by a bus accident whose physical repercussions would shape the rest of her days, crucially inform her artwork and eventually kill her. Kahlo was already a painter when she married the political muralist Diego Rivera at 22, a volatile pairing that survived much unrest and one divorce and remarriage. She had her first solo exhibition in 1938, at New Yorkis Julien Levy Gallery, and saw some growth in her career before her death in 1954, but nothing like the steady, exponential increase of interest and respect that has continued since. Exhibits, books and reproductions abound, and 2002 saw the release of a high-profile feature film about her life starring Salma Hayek.
