Frida Kahlo: Song of Herself

Frida Kahlo: Song of Herself Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Frida Kahlo's extraordinary life has been well documented, but until now little has been known about the artist's thoughts on her internal and external reality. In Song of Herself, Kahlo expert and child psychiatrist Salomon Grimberg introduces and contextualizes an inumate, deeply introspective interview that Kahlo gave towards the end of her life to her friend the psychologist Olga Campos for an unpublished book on the creative process. Kahlo comments directly and starkly as never before on her life, her loves and her art, and expresses her attitudes towards sexuality, her body, friendship, politics and death, among other personal concerns. The most reveoling outobiographical text known on this singular woman, this startling interview is accompanied here by Campos's reflections on her relationship with Kahlo and a psychological assessment of Kahlo by Dr James Bridger Harris.
