Frida Kahlo: A Biography

Read
21 printed pages
It is impossible to separate Frida Kahlo's work from her life. This most autobiographical of artists created a virtual timeline in her paintings that spanned her entire career as an artist. From the time she began painting while recovering from a brutal accident that left her disabled, to her final struggles, shortly before her death, with a body that was literally wired together, Frida Kahlo chronicled her life on canvas. Above the gruesome aspects of her injuries, above the pain and the surgeries, rose a white hot flame of passion and creativity. When Frida Kahlo suffered, she suffered intensely; when she celebrated, her world became a celebration.

Because of the intensity of these highs and lows, the visceral effect of Frida Kahlo's work hits you with a virtual punch to the stomach. Before you realize it, you're drawn into her world, captivated by those solemn, staring portraits which, in turn, are scrutinizing you as well.

Frida's portraits depict all of life's experiences: pain, sorrow, intense suffering, and great joy. Sometimes the joy is contained and private, as in her "Wedding Portrait." Similar to Van Gogh, her paintings celebrate the simplicity and courage of everyday life; as with El Greco, her paintings also depict the universal suffering of mankind.
