Riassunto: Drawing on firsthand sources including collectors, friends, and fellow artists, Hayden Herrera has produced an exhaustive study of the Mexican painter’s life, loves, and artistry. Letters and diary material add an intimate tone to a tumultuous tale of sex, politics, and marginalization in the world of art. Kahlo’s legend arose from her life, from the tragic accident at 18 that left her barren, to her stormy marriage to Diego Rivera that didn’t preclude affairs with Noguchi and Trotsky. Kahlo’s distinctive interpretations of Mexican folklore and culture make her one of the most enduring figures in modern art, one that Herrera explores with the sense of drama appropriate for this larger-than-life figure. This audiobook is the definitive study of the life of the volatile and charismatic artist, the subject of a major film starring Salma Hayek and Edward Norton to be released in October 2002. "A haunting, highly vivid biography." — Ms.


Hailed by readers and critics across the country, this engrossing biography of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo reveals a woman of extreme magnetism and originality, an artist whose sensual vibrancy came straight from her own experiences: her childhood near Mexico City during the Mexican Revolution; a devastating accident at age eighteen that left her crippled and unable to bear children; her tempestuous marriage to muralist Diego Rivera and intermittent love affairs with men as diverse as Isamu Noguchi and Leon Trotsky; her association with the Communist Party; her absorption in Mexican folklore and culture; and her dramatic love of spectacle.

Here is the tumultuous life of an extraordinary twentieth-century woman -- with illustrations as rich and haunting as her legend.
