You can always recognize a painting by Kahlo because she is in nearly all--with her black braided hair and colorful Mexican outfits. A brave woman who was an invalid most of her life, she transformed herself into a living work of art. As famous for her self-portraits and haunting imagery as she was for her marriage to another famous artist, Diego Rivera, this strong and courageous painter was inspired by the ancient culture and history of her beloved homeland, Mexico. Her paintings continue to inform and inspire popular culture around the world. From the Trade Paperback edition.

But while her husband Diego Riviera, amidst the Mexican macho society, could live his immorality in public, she had to arrange her dates with other men covertly.

In Song of Herself, psychiatrist and Kahlo expert Salomon Grimberg introduces and contextualizes a deeply introspective interview that Kahlo gave toward the end of her life to her friend the psychologist Olga Campos. The interview was intended to appear in a book on the creative process of artistic individuals, but it was never published. Kahlo comments candidly on her life, her loves, and her painting, and expresses her attitudes toward her body, politics, friendship, sexuality, and death, among other personal concerns. The most startling autobiographical text known on this singular woman, Kahlo's interview is accompanied by Campos's warm reflections on their relationship, a medical history oh Kahlo gathered by Dr. Henriette Begun, and a detailed psychological assessment of the artist by Dr. James Bridger Harris.

Beginning in the late 1970’s Frida Kahlo achieved cult heroine status less for her richly surrealist self-portraits than by the popularization of the events of her tumultuous life. Her images were splashed across billboards magazine ads, and postcards; fashion designers copied the so-called “Frida” look in hairstyles and dress; and “Fridamania” even extended to T-shirts, jewelry, and nail polish. Margaret A. Lindauer argues that this mass market assimilation of Kahlo’s identity has consistently detracted from appreciation of her work, leading instead to narrow interpretations based on “an entrenched narrative of suffering.” While she agrees that Kahlo’s political and feminist activism, her stormy marriage to fellow artist Diego Reviera, and the tragic reality of a progressively debilitated body did represent a biography colored by emotional and physical upheaval, she questions an “author-equals-the-work” critical tradition that assumes a :one-to-one association of life events to the meaning of a painting.” In kahlo’s case, Lindauer says, such assumptions created a devouring mythology, an iconization that separates us from rather than leads us to the real significance of the oeuvre. Accompanied by 26 illustrations and deep analysis of Kahlo’s central themes, this provocative, semiotic study recontextualizes an important figure in art history at the same time it addresses key questions about the language of interpretation, the nature of veneration, and the truths within self-representation.

A visual feast of Kahlo and Rivera's finest works that will leave readers intellectually challenged and emotionally awakened. He painted for the people. She painted to survive. Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) and Diego Rivera's (1886-1957) legendary passion for each other and for Mexico's revolutionary culture during the 1920s and 1930s made them two of the twentieth century's most famous artists. During their life together as a married couple, Rivera achieved prominence as a muralist, while Kahlo's intimate paintings were embraced by the Surrealist movement and the Mexican art world. After their deaths in the 1950s, retrospectives of Kahlo's work enshrined her as one of the most significant women artists of the twentieth century, partially eclipsing Rivera's international fame as Mexico's greatest muralist painter. Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics and Painting offers a new perspective on their artistic significance for the twenty-first century, one that shows how their paintings reflect both the dramatic story of their lives together and their artistic commitment to the transformative political and cultural values of post-revolutionary Mexico. Frida & Diego features colour reproductions of 75 paintings and works on paper by both Kahlo and Rivera, rarely reproduced archival photographs, and new biographical information on the couple assembled by scholar Dot Tuer.
