Format: Hardcover
I am a Frida Kahlo fan and I purchased this book because 88% of the reviews were 5 stars. A 1 star reviewer said not to buy it because of the many photos of Diego Rivera! This did not deter me, but now I believe I should have listened. The book should have been titled "Diego Rivera". Plus there are so many photos that are just different views of essentially the same thing. To me these are just duplicates. There should not be so much repetition in any book let alone one with a mere 160 pages! The photos of Frida look like they were all taken the same day, two days tops! There is much more variety within the photos of Diego but I was not buying a book about him! I have not seen any other photography books on Frida Kahlo so maybe this is the best there is? Hence all the 5 stars?

The book is an intimate glimpse into the "blue house" home/studio of Kahlo and Rivera in Mexico City. Well presented with occasional contact sheets, Gisele Freund's black and white compositions are beautiful, interesting and arresting.

I bought this for my wife and she absolutely loved it! This is not a biography. It is a picture book of Fridas life, paintings, and photo history. Great coffee table book.
