Devouring Frida : the art history and popular celebrity of Frida Kahlo by Margaret A Lindauer( )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 2,341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning in the late 1970's Frida Kahlo achieved cult heroine status less for her richly surrealist self-portraits than by the popularization of the events of her tumultuous life. Her images were splashed across billboards magazine ads, and postcards; fashion designers copied the so-called "Frida" look in hairstyles and dress; and "Fridamania" even extended to T-shirts, jewelry, and nail polish. Margaret A. Lindauer argues that this mass market assimilation of Kahlo's identity has consistently detracted from appreciation of her work, leading instead to narrow interpretations based on "an entrenched narrative of suffering." While she agrees that Kahlo's political and feminist activism, her stormy marriage to fellow artist Diego Reviera, and the tragic reality of a progressively debilitated body did represent a biography colored by emotional and physical upheaval, she questions an "author-equals-the-work" critical tradition that assumes a :one-to-one association of life events to the meaning of a painting." In Kahlo's case, Lindauer says, such assumptions created a devouring mythology, an iconization that separates us from rather than leads us to the real significance of the oeuvre. Accompanied by 26 illustrations and deep analysis of Kahlo's central themes, this provocative, semiotic study recontextualizes an important figure in art history at the same time it addresses key questions about the language of interpretation, the nature of veneration, and the truths within self-representation

Frida Kahlo by Frida Kahlo( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mexican artist Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) is best known for her numerous self-portraits, which she filled with symbolic and surrealist elements, such as her own head on the body of a deer, skeletal figures, and fantastic and colorful birds and animals. As her work has been reassessed in recent years and she has come to be recognized as the groundbreaking figure that she was, her reputation has only grown. This book not only reproduces more than 200 of her paintings from every genre, including landscape and still life as well as the self-portraits, but also shows how the drama of her life informed her art. The catastrophic physical calamities she experienced - polio, a serious bus accident, miscarriages, and the lasting pain from her injuries - as well as the events of her fiery emotional life in her marriage to Diego Rivera, her affair with Leon Trotsky, and her sorrow at remaining childless are all represented literally or symbolically in her paintings. Her ability to endure and her willingness to reveal both her weakness and her strength in her work continue to inspire." "This book presents a full range of Kahlo's work, including a number of rarely seen paintings from private collections. Throughout, photographs of Kahlo's life - from childhood photos to portraits of the ailing but still vibrant artist taken near the end of her life - help us to understand the magnificent personality that created these masterful artworks. The paintings, including her most seminal works, are shown in stunningly lavish reproduction; nine gatefolds allow the reader to examine is detail aspects of her larger pieces. Essays by three esteemed art historians and Diego Rivera illuminate her work for readers. This volume will be a must-have for Kahlo devotees and for those just discovering her for the first time."--Jacket

The diary of Frida Kahlo : an intimate self-portrait by Frida Kahlo( Book )

20 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume relates Mexican painter Frida Kahlo's (1919- 1954) images of pain, loss, mutilation and transcendence to Mexico's historic cycles of revolution and reaction. This work reproduces her personal journal that she kept during the last 10 years of her life -- handwritten, colored-ink entries and accompanying self-portraits, sketches, doodles and paintings, which fuse surrealism, pre-Columbian gods and myths, biomorphic forms, animal-human hybrids, archetypal symbols. Readers get a taste of Kahlo's preoccupation with death, brought on by declining health, isolation and repeated surgical operations resulting from the bus accident that severely damaged her spine, pelvic bones, right leg and right foot at the age of 18. The author intends to place the journal in the context of the painter's shattered life. Sprinkled with irony, black humor, even joy, and augmented with translations of the diary entries plus commentaries and photographs, this work is a testament to Kahlo's resilience and courage

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new survey of the masterworks of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, set against the backdrop of Mexican Modernism. Few artists have captured the public's imagination with the force of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Icons respectively of surrealism and the Mural Movement, their work reflected their immersion in indigenous Mexican culture while looking ahead to progressive ideals and wielding a defining influence on Mexican Modernism. Brought together for a unique exhibition at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, this catalog includes more than thirty masterpieces by Kahlo and Rivera from the renowned Gelman Foundation Collection in Mexico City, among them such iconic works as Kahlo's 'Autorretrato con Monos' (Self-Portrait with Monkeys) and 'Diego en Mi Pensamiento' (Diego on My Mind), and 'Rivera's Autorretrato' (Self-Portrait) and 'Retrato de Natasha Gelman' (Portrait of Natasha Gelman). Set in the broader context of the Mexican modernist movement, Kahlo's and Rivera's pieces are accompanied by works by such other masters as Jose Clemente Orozco, Rufino Tamayo, and Leonora Carrington. This book is being published to coincide with the exhibition Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection and Mexican Modernism from the Stanley and Pearl Goodman Collection, at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale. Exhibition: Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, USA (26.2.-31.5.2015)

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Behind Frida Kahlo's portraits, lies the story of her life - a body of work drawn from cries of anger and fury, blended into a potent, and artistically exceptional, combination. At six years of age, she suffered a bout of polio and she was just eighteen when a terrible bus accident changed her life forever, leaving her handicapped and burdened with constant physical pain. But her explosive character, raw determination and hard work helped to shape her artistic talent. Frida Kahlo managed to forge a place for herself in the macho society of Mexico despite the double handicap of her crushed body and her sex. Alhough an obsessive womanizer, the great painter Diego Rivera was constantly by her side. She won him over with her charm, talent and intelligence, and Kahlo learnt to lean on the success of her companion in order to explore the world, thus creating her own legacy whilst finding herself surrounded by a close-knit group of friends, one of the most charistmatic of whom was the great Russian Revolutionary leader, Leon Trotsky. Her personal life was turbulent, as she frequently put her relationship with Diego to one side whilst she cultivated her own bisexual relationships. Despite this, Frida and Diego always managed to maintain their battered relationship. Frida Kahlo's work plays an important part in the artistic heritage of Mexico, her native country, with both its novelty and its multi-cultural values. The story and the paintings that Frida created reveal a rare and courageous account of a woman on a voyage of constant self discovery."--Publisher's website
