An icon of the 20th century

Today, Frida Kahlo is a global icon of the emancipated woman artist, celebrated for her political and social views, her extravagant personal style, and above all her breathtaking works of art. Her marriage to Diego Rivera in 1929, her exhibitions in Paris, and her friendship with André Breton – captured by the most famous photographers of the time – also made Frida Khalo very famous during her own lifetime. Her art, with its unique and immediately recognizable character, draws on elements of Mexican folk art, pre-Columbian culture and Surrealism.
With over 100 works from Frida Kahlo's groundbreaking oeuvre, this volume is an ideal introduction to the work of this painter. Roxana Velásquez, a leading international authority on Kahlo, guides us through the artist's life and work with a fresh and varied look at Kahlo’s captivating but rarely shown paintings as well as the well-known masterpieces.

The Mexican artist FRIDA KAHLO (1907–1954) holds one of the most important positions in 20th-century art. Her painting combines elements of Surrealism with influences from the popular culture of Latin America, but also allows the “Magic Realism” of Neue Sachlichkeit to shine through.
ROXANA VELÁSQUEZ is the director of the San Diego Museum of Art. She enjoys international recognition as an expert on Frida Kahlo and has curated major exhibitions on her work, such as Frida Kahlo 1907–2007 and the National Homage at the Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico-City, in 2007.
