Abstract:

"Diego Rivera once characterized Frida Kahlo as the first woman in the history of art who--with a directness and brutal clarity--focused on subjects exclusively to do with women. Late twentieth-century perceptions of Mexican art are now dominated by Kahlo, whose work has gained enormous popularity. Her stormy relationship with the painter Diego Rivera is mirrored in many of her stunning paintings, which also combine motifs of folk art with deeply personal self-portraits. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.
