Аннотация к книге «Frida Kahlo "I Paint My Reality"»
'The art of Frida Kahlo is a ribbon around a bomb' - Andre Breton.
Frida Kahlo learned about suffering at an early age. She contracted polio when she was six and was seriously maimed in a bus accident at the age of eighteen, which led to injuries that affected her for the rest of her life. She had a legendarily turbulent marriage to the great mural painter Diego Rivera, with whom she formed a strong attachment to indigenous Mexican folk art and a deep commitment to Communism. Admired by the Surrealists and photographed by the greatest, Frida was most renowned for her self-portraits and unusual still lifes.
This book traces the extraordinary life of an artist whose unforgettable imagery combined cruelty and wit, honesty and insolence, pain and empowerment.
