Frida Kahlo died in 1954, but it wasn't until the early eighties that her colorful paintings began to draw the attention they have long deserved.
Kahlo's intense emotional works reflect her philosophy of nature and life, which was intertwined with the revival of Indian culture in the Mexico of her time. Wrote Diego Rivera of his wife: "She is the first woman in the history of art who took up, with absolute and ruthless sincerity, themes that exclusively concern women." The 43 plates here beautifully document how Frida Kahlo evolved into the great Mexican painter who today enjoys worldwide recognition. 43 color platesW. W.
