Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera ( Two books in slip case) (Temporis Collection), Gerry Souter; Parkstone Press
38 Gerry Souter; Parkstone Press Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera ( Two books in slip case) (Temporis Collection)
Sirrocco-Parkstone International 2008-07-10 1859956084 / 9781859956083 Hardcover New Like New Hardcover 
New in slipcase in shrink wrap. They met in 1928, Frida Kahlo was then 21 years old and Diego Rivera was twice her age. He was already an international reference, she only aspired to become one. An intense artistic creation, along with pain and suffering, was generated by this tormented union, in particular for Frida. Constantly in the shadow of her husband, bearing his unfaithfulness and her jealousy, Frida exorcised the pain on canvas, and won progressively the public s interest. On both continents, America and Europe, these commited artists proclaimed their freedom and left behind them the traces of their exceptional talent. In this book, Gerry Souter brings together both biographies and underlines with passion the link which existed between the two greatest mexican artists of the 20th century.

40 Grimberg, Salomon; Oles, James; Fuentes, Carlos; Kahlo, Frida Frida Kahlo: National Homage 1907-2007
Editorial RM 2008-03-01 9685208883 / 9789685208888 Hardcover Collectible: Like New Hardcover 
New. Unread. Still in shrink wrap. During the summer of 2007, the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City hosted the most complete exhibition ever of the work of Frida Kahlo. Marking the centenary of Kahlo's birth, the Palacio showed 354 works, including 64 oil paintings, both beloved and virtually unknown, 45 drawings, 11 watercolors, 5 etchings, plus scores of letters, photographs and other personal ephemera. It was a labor of love, as well as a loving gesture, for Mexico's greatest artistic ambassador. It was also timely; Kahlo is in the air again, as young contemporary artists revisit and recast psychoanalytic, Neosurrealistic figuration.In 1953, when Frida Kahlo had her first solo exhibition in Mexico--the only one held in her native country during her lifetime--one critic wrote: It is impossible to separate the life and work of this extraordinary person. Her paintings are her biography. Kahlo herself puts it better: They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn't. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality. This essential catalogue, based on the Palacio de Bellas Artes exhibition, presents brief essays by a wide range of Kahlo scholars, poets, anthropologists, architects, psychologists and experts in many other disciplines, both from Mexico and abroad--as well as a more extended appreciation of Kahlo by the novelist Carlos Fuentes, along with Kahlo's own paintings, drawings, prints and ephemera.
