Описание: "I was considered a Surrealist. That is not right.
I never painted dreams. What I depicted, was my
reality." Our book zooms right into this reality, and
it does so in a new and unusual way: presenting Frida
Kahlo's paintings in a general view and in selected
details, it reveals the wealth of stories and creatures
hidden in her self-portraits; it makes tangible the
life-long physical and spiritual pain endured by the
artist; and it illustrates painterly skills and techniques
reminiscent of old European masters. Making
visible what tends to escape one's notice in her
seemingly familiar paintings, this lavish volume takes
even inveterate Kahlo fans on a mesmerizing discovery
trip to the sensuousness, the beauty, and the
abysses of her world.
This monograph presents Frida Kahlo's life and work
in pictures. Frida Kahlo expert Helga Prignitz-Poda
provides elaborate background information on each
of the paintings.
