Frida Kahlo - Lives of Artists
Fridamania has made Frida Kahlo’s image ubiquitous: she has been reborn as a Halloween costume, Barbie doll, children’s book character, textile print, phone cover, and the inspiration for everything from cocktails to fashion shoots. But it is more difficult to get a clear vision of this bold and brilliant, foul-mouthed, heavy-drinking, hard-smoking, husband-stealing, occasionally bisexual, often bed-bound, wheelchair-using, needy, forthright and passionate woman. Hettie Judah sets out to correct that with this superb biography of one of the most charismatic artists of the last hundred years.
The Lives the Artists series from Laurence King is a highly readable series of short biographies of the most-popular artists.
