Frida Kahlo Face To Face

Cover art for Frida Kahlo Face to Face

Description: At once deeply personal and brilliantly perceptive, this dynamic reconsideration of the life and work of Frida Kahlo is curated by the prominent feminist artist Judy Chicago, who helped introduce American audiences to Kahlo’s paintings. For decades Judy Chicago has worked tirelessly to ensure that women's artistic achievements become a permanent part of our cultural heritage. In this sumptuous, large format book, she turns her attention to the work of Frida Kahlo, one of the world’s most revered female painters. In this volume Chicago has handpicked a selection of Kahlo’s work, a hundred portraits that speak to her own experiences as a woman in the arts. The result is a fascinating “conversation” between two artistic icons, one that is further enhanced by a dialogue between Chicago and the art historian Frances Borzello, an authority on women’s portraiture. The book features each work in its own spread, highlighted with commentary by Chicago and Borzello. Essays explore Kahlo’s many faces: woman, artist, historical figure and inspiration. Designed to evoke a Mexican retablo, or altarpiece, this volume reframes Frida Kahlo for a contemporary audience.
