Frida

About the Artist

Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) is considered one of Mexico's greatest artists. During her lifetime, she exhibited her paintings in Paris and Mexico. The feminist movement of the 1970s led to renewed interest in Kahlo's life and work, and she is viewed by many as an icon of female creativity. In addition to her famous self-portraits, the artist is also known for her political activism and marriage to Diego Rivera, as she often incorporated these aspects of her life into her work.

Description

Sébastian Perez and Benjamin Lacombe

A sumptuous feast of a book, Frida allows the reader to enter this revered artist’s world, both literally and metaphorically. Through a series of consecutive die-cut pages, one is drawn in—passing through aspects of her life, art, and creative process while exploring the themes that inspired her most, such as love, death, and maternity. Iconic and visceral, her work has always had the ability to transcend borders and resonate with its honest and graphic depiction of the human condition. Until now, there has never been a greater homage. Excerpts from Frida Kahlo’s personal diaries alternate with Sébastian Perez’s poetic musings to give fresh insight and emotional depth, while Benjamin Lacombe’s stunning artwork masterfully conveys the symbolism and surrealism of her art. A must for any fan or bibliophile.
