Frida Kahlo: The Still Lifes

Frida Kahlo: The Still Lifes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) is one of the most famous artists of all time. However, while much has been written about Kahlo's striking self-portraits (of which some 80 are known), her still-life paintings (of which 40 or so are documented) have not been subjected to such close scrutiny until now. In this groundbreaking study, noted Kahlo scholar Salomon Grimberg explores in detail and interprets all of the artist's still lifes, including some that have come to light only recently. Offering provocative new perspectives on Kahlo's creative process, and revealing how the still lifes reflected her internal reality and complement her self-portraits, this book represents an indispensable contribution to the literature on an enduringly popular artist.
