About the workWhile her body of work may be relatively modest, Frida Kahlo's impact is nothing short of profound, earning her adoration and admiration that few artists have achieved. This accessible and refined book presents full-page reproductions of a carefully selected range of Kahlo's creations, enabling a wide-ranging appreciation of her masterful use of colour, composition, and texture.
The accompanying biographical narrative takes readers through the early stages of Kahlo's career, marked by a life-altering bus accident that left her bedridden and grappling with pain. Paradoxically, it was during this challenging period that she discovered herself through the medium of painting. The text further traces her life, exploring her personal relationships and her years spent in America.
Eckhard Hollmann delves into the myriad themes and motifs within Kahlo's art, ranging from the portrayal of physical and emotional anguish to the incorporation of Mexican and indigenous folklore, as well as the vibrant flora and fauna of her cherished homeland. Kahlo fearlessly bared her deepest fears and desires, championed the marginalised with unwavering dignity and passion, and her enduring legacy continues to inspire artists striving to remain authentic amidst personal and political constraints.
