The original and intimate art of Mexico s most famous female painter The arresting pictures ofFrida Kahlo (1907 54) were in many ways expressions of trauma. Through a near-fatal road accident at the age of 18, failing health, a turbulent marriage, miscarriage and childlessness, shetransformed the afflictions into revolutionary art.In literal or metaphorical self-portraiture, Kahlo looks out at the viewer with an audacious glare, rejecting her destiny as a passive victim and rather intertwining expressions of her experience into ahybrid surreal-real language of living hair, roots, veins, vines, tendrils and fallopian tubes.

Many of her works also explore theCommunist political ideals which Kahlo shared with Rivera. The artist described her paintings as the most sincere and real thing that I could do in order to express what I felt inside and outside of myself. This book introduces a rich body of Kahlo s work to explore her unremitting determination as an artist, and her significance as a painter, feminist icon, and a pioneer of Latin American culture.
