Diary of Frida Kahlo, an intimate self portrait
The intimate life of artist Frida Kahlo is wonderfully revealed in the illustrated journal she kept during her last 10 years. This contains the artist's thoughts, poems, and dreams; many reflecting her stormy relationship with Diego Rivera, along with 70 watercolour illustrations. The text entries in bright inks make the journal as captivating to look at as it is to read. Her writing reveals her political sensibilities, recollections of her childhood, and enormous courage in the face of more than thirty-five operations to correct injuries she had sustained from an accident at the age of eighteen.
