Synopsis

Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), whose art mirrors the passion, tumult, and enormous strength of an anguished life, is one of the most charismatic figures of her time. Her paintings mingle Surrealism, folk art, and autobiography in a haunting and visceral style. The Diary of Frida Kahlo provides, in Kahlo's own words and pictures, the most personal and candid view possible of her remarkable life. 338 illustrations, 167 in color.
