One of the key figures in Mexican revolutionary modern art, she was also a pioneer of the politics of gender, sexuality, and feminism. This XXL monograph combines all of Kahlo's 152 paintings with rarely seen..

Among the few women artists who have transcended art history, none had a meteoric rise quite like Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907–1954).  Her unmistakable face, depicted in over fifty extraordinary self-portraits, has been admired by generations; along with hundreds of  photographs taken by notable artists such as Edward Weston, Manuel and Lola Álvarez Bravo, Nickolas Muray, and Martin Munkácsi, they made Frida  Kahlo an iconic image of 20th century art.

After an accident in  her early youth, Frida became a painter of her own free will. Her  marriage to Diego Rivera in 1929 placed her at the forefront of an artistic scene not only in the cultural Renaissance of Mexico, but also in the United States. Her work garnered praise from the poet André  Breton, who added the Mexican painter to the ranks of international  surrealism and exhibited her work in Paris in 1939 to the admiration of  Picasso, Kandinsky, and Duchamp. We access the intimacy of Frida’s  affections and passions through a selection of drawings, pages from her  personal diary, letters, and an extensive illustrated biography  featuring photos of Frida, Diego, and the Casa Azul, Frida’s home and the center of her universe.

This large-format XXL book allows  readers to admire Frida Kahlo's paintings like never before, including unprecedented detail shots and famous photographs. It presents pieces in  private collections and reproduces works that were previously lost or have not been exhibited for more than 80 years, forming the most  extensive study of Kahlo's work and life to date.
