Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Comparatively sparse visually, Udall's work explores many different facets of Kahlo, Emily Carr, and Georgia O'Keeffe. In the opening essay, independent historian Udall assigns Kahlo the role of the woman artist exploring her heritage and identity through art. This essay sets the tone for the rest of the book. By grouping Kahlo, Carr, and O'Keeffe, Udall is able to show how traditional, native values influenced the work of each artist and how being a woman altered the subject and tone of each piece she created. It is interesting to note the way men are presented in these two books. For example, Diego Rivera, credited with being a supportive husband by the male essayists in Lozano's work, is seen as a selfish, cheating manipulator by Udall, who chooses to delve into the complexity of Rivera and Kahlo's relationship instead of presenting the glossed over, one-sided view found in Lozano's book. Overall, however, both books are strong. Frida Kahlo is a visually breathtaking and exciting read. Places of Their Own offers small, if lovely and useful, reproductions of some paintings, but the rich analysis of the lives of these three artists is what matters here. Jointly, these two works offer the most comprehensive visual and academic study of Kahlo available yet. Recommended for all serious art collections. Rachel Collins, "Library Journal"
