About Frida Kahlo Notecards – Postcard Book – Chronicle Books
This exclusive Postcard Book features a set Frida Kahlo Notecards displaying 22 some of her most popular works in a high-quality, inexpensive collection. This compilation of Kahlo’s most famous and haunting works was selected from her passionate self-portraits, exotic still-lifes, and semi-surreal scenes. Kahlo’s works explore her unremitting determination as an artist, and her significance as a painter, feminist icon, and a pioneer of Latin American culture. The arresting pictures of Frida Kahlo (1907–54) were in many ways expressions of trauma. Through a near-fatal road accident at the age of 18, failing health, a turbulent marriage, miscarriage, and childlessness, she transformed the afflictions into revolutionary art. In literal or metaphorical self-portraiture, Kahlo looks out at the viewer with an audacious glare, rejecting her destiny as a passive victim and rather intertwining expressions of her experience into a hybrid real-surreal language of living: hair, roots, veins, vines, tendrils, and fallopian tubes. Many of her works also explore the Communist political ideals which Kahlo shared with her husband Diego Rivera. More details on Frida Kahlo Notecards – Postcard Book – Chronicle Books:
