About the Author
Frida Kahlo lived fewer than 50 years, but hers was an intensely examined life, and one that enthusiasts all over the world are still poring over. As a child in the suburbs of Mexico City, Kahlo, born in 1907, survived polio. As a teenager already enrolled in premedical studies, her body was brought forcefully to her attention again by a bus accident whose physical repercussions would shape the rest of her days, crucially inform her artwork and eventually kill her. Kahlo was already a painter when she married the political muralist Diego Rivera at 22, a volatile pairing that survived much unrest and one divorce and remarriage. She had her first solo exhibition in 1938, at New Yorkis Julien Levy Gallery, and saw some growth in her career before her death in 1954, but nothing like the steady, exponential increase of interest and respect that has continued since. Exhibits, books and reproductions abound, and 2002 saw the release of a high-profile feature film about her life starring Salma Hayek.

The publisher used the best, thickest paper; it is luxuriant and heavy (this is one HEAVY book) and offers the best possibility for viewing Frida Kahlo's wealth of a photographic collection.
And yet, for the size and scope, and I realize that the impossibility of what one actually wants and what was there available to make the book possible are two different things, I waas expecting... more Frida!
A very good side effect is the reproduction of the verso of many of the photos, where Kahlo has annotated them, often adding interesting tidbits of information.
If like me, you are a Fridaphile, then buy this book.
