It might seem unbelievable that an artist as famous as Frida Kahlo could have the entirety of the her painted works documented in one book, but that is exactly what Taschen has done with their latest tome, ‘Frida Kahlo. The Complete Paintings.’ This XXL monograph of the Mexican artist’s oeuvre combines all of Kahlo’s 152 paintings with rarely seen photographs, diary pages, letters and an illustrated biography. As one of the most well-known women artists in history, Kahlo was a key figure in Mexican revolutionary modern art, whose championing of feminism, sexuality and gender transcended many of her era.
Many of the pieces included in the book have been painstakingly sourced from private collections—previously rarely seen or reproduced—by author and editor Luis-Martín Lozano. The book also includes essays by art historians specializing in Kahlo’s work and Mexican revolutionary art of the period, Andrea Kettenmann and Marina Vázquez Ramos. Alongside this extensive research and the stunning collection of paintings, readers will find an illustrated biography featuring photos of Frida, her husband Diego Rivera and the Casa Azul, Frida’s home and the center of her universe.
We are offering our readers a chance to win ‘Frida Kahlo. The Complete Paintings,’ valued at 150 Euros, by following the instructions below.
