Description

For over more than four decades, Frida Kahlo has become the world’s most renowned Mexican artist. Since recent years, the collection of clothing and personal artifacts from the Frida Kahlo Museum – known colloquially as the Blue House – has also been exhibited outside of Mexico with overwhelming success. Much has been written about Frida Kahlo. WBOOKS wanted to create a book that would be different from existing publications, not only in terms of content but also in terms of design. It contains some 50 of Frida Kahlo’s paintings and drawings, as well as personal attributes such as clothing, her sunglasses, her Revlon lipstick and the corsets and prostheses that she had to wear due to a serious accident at a young age. This publication is a fascinating extension of the exhibition Viva la Frida! in The Netherlands. It not only celebrates and delves into Kahlo’s life and art by colourfully displaying her photographs and home; her self-expression and self-fashioning and her artistic influences. It also goes beyond the artist, acknowledging the pop culture icon she is today, by exploring her undeniable impact on art, fashion and music.
