A Modern MasterBook - 2006
Mexican painter Firda Kahlo first began to paint her brilliantly colored, highly stylized works, while recovering from an auto accident. Encouraged by muralist Diego Rivera, whom she later married, she produced more than 200 paintings that speak directly to contemporary feminist issues. Though her work was often overlooked during her lifetime, Kahlo is now ranked among the great masters of the twentieth century. This volume chronicles Kahlo's life and work with archival photographs and full-color illustrations of her greatest paintings.
