The Diary of Frida Kahlo - an Intimate Self-Portrait

Kahlo, Frida

Frida Kahlo's illustrated journal for 1944-1954, the last ten years of her life, is printed as a full-colour facsimile edition – a very special publishing event. Seventy watercolours, sketches and self-portraits are complemented by Kahlo's text entries, each followed by translation and commentary. Her childhood, politics, relationship with Diego Rivera, and courage facing more than thirty-five operations to correct injuries from an earlier accident, find expression in her unique and powerful vision.

Introduction by novelist Carlos Fuentes, with commentary by Sarah Lowe.
