Pocket Frida Kahlo Wisdom: Inspirational Quotes and Wise
Frida Kahlo is undoubtedly one of the most innovative and influential painters of the 20th century and is widely considered a style icon thanks to her eclectic taste and love for color, print and hauls of jewelry. From a young age, Kahlo forged her own path, overcoming polio as a child, and stoically battling the after-effects of a tragic road accident that left her with lifelong injuries. Pocket Frida Kahlo Wisdom is an inspiring collection of some of her best quotes on love, style, life, art and more, and celebrates the Mexican icon's immense legacy."Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light.""The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.""I am my own muse, I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better."

Frida Kahlo at Home
Frida Kahlo at
Frida Kahlo at Home explores the influence of Mexican culture and tradition, La Casa Azul and other places Frida Kahlo called home, on her life and work.La Casa Azul, now one of the most visited museums in Mexico City, was the artist's birthplace and the home where she grew up. Health troubles and a trolley accident in her youth forced her to spend long periods at home convalescing and she took up painting to pass the time, ultimately developing her own distinctive style which depicted themes drawn from her own life but also contained a strong political message. She married renowned artist Diego Rivera and moved out of la Casa Azul, living in other homes in Mexico and abroad, until eventually returning to her childhood home and converting it into a space that reflected her dedication to Mexican culture.Fully illustrated, the book features Frida's paintings together with archive images and family photographs, objects and artefacts she collected and photographs of the surrounding landscape to provide an insight into how these places shaped this much-loved artist and how the homes and landscapes of her life relate to her work.

Few artists have captured the public's imagination with the force of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. During her lifetime, she was best known as the flamboyant wife of celebrated muralist Diego Rivera. Theirs was a tumultuous relationship: Rivera declared himself to be "unfit for fidelity." As if to assuage her pain, Kahlo recorded the vicissitudes of her marriage in paint. She also recorded the misery of her deteriorating health--the orthopedic corsets that she was forced to wear, the numerous spinal surgeries, the miscarriages and therapeutic abortions. The artist's sometimes harrowing imagery is mitigated by an intentional primitivism and small scale, as well as by her sardonic humor and extraordinary imagination. In celebration of the one-hundredth anniversary of Kahlo's birth, this major new monograph is published on the occasion of the 2007-08 traveling exhibition. It features the artist's most renowned work--the hauntingly seductive and often brutal self-portraits--as well as a selection of key portraits and still lifes; more than 100 color plates, from Kahlo's earliest works, made in 1926, to her last, in 1954; critical essays by Elizabeth Carpenter, Hayden Herrera and Victor Zamudio-Taylor; and a selection of photographs of Kahlo and Rivera by preeminent photographers of the...

Who Was Frida Kahlo?
Who Was Frida
You can always recognize a painting by Kahlo because she is in nearly all--with her black braided hair and colorful Mexican outfits. A brave woman who was an invalid most of her life, she transformed herself into a living work of art. As famous for her self-portraits and haunting imagery as she was for her marriage to another famous artist, Diego Rivera, this strong and courageous painter was inspired by the ancient culture and history of her beloved homeland, Mexico. Her paintings continue to inform and inspire popular culture around the world.

Diego Rivera: The Detroit Industry Murals
Diego Rivera: The Detroit Industry
A beautifully illustrated in-depth study of the most important North American work by the best-known Mexican muralist, Diego Rivera. Early in the Depression, Diego Rivera was commissioned by Edsel Ford to create a series of murals in the gallery of the Detroit Institute of Arts, giant frescos whose theme would be America’s industrial might. This volume studies the astonishing results and gives us a remarkably close look at Diego and his wife, Frida Kahlo. Rivera’s Detroit Industry murals are one of this country’s greatest treasures. In addition to providing full coverage and analysis of the murals, the book includes chapters on the murals’ planning and antecedents, Rivera’s working methods (which can be read as a primer on frescos), Diego and Frida’s lives for their nine months in Detroit, and the public’s dramatic response to the strong socialist/communist themes in the works.

El libro secreto de Frida Kahlo (Atria Espanol)
Now in Spanish: one of Mexico’s most celebrated new novelists, F. G. Haghenbeck offers a beautifully written reimagining of Frida Kahlo’s fascinating life and loves.Entre los objetos personales de Frida Kahlo había una pequeña libreta negra a la que llamaba “El Libro de Hierba Santa” con su colección de recetas de cocina dedicadas a la Santa Muerte. Esta se exhibiría por primera vez en el Palacio de Bellas Artes con motivo de la fecha de su natalicio. El día que se abrió la exhibición al público la libreta desapareció. F. G. Haghenbeck, uno de los escritores más aclamados en México, se inspiró en este hecho y escribió esta maravillosa novela, la cual trae una vez más a la vida a la famosa artista Frida Kahlo. Haghenbeck imagina que esta libreta fue un regalo de su amante Tina Modotti, después de que Frida sobrevivió al terrible accidente de tráfico que marcó su vida. Desde este punto, Haghenbeck intercala recetas con pasajes vividos por la artista y reconstruye de una forma magistral la tumultuosa pero fascinante vida de Frida Kahlo, desde su romance con el amor de su vida y afamado pintor Diego Rivera, hasta sus relaciones con personajes famosos como Georgia O’Keeffe, Ernest Hemingway y Salvador Dalí, entre otros.
