The legend of Frida Kahlo looms large over the history of 20th century art. The Mexican artist is most famous for her surreal self-portraits that reflected her connection with her country’s popular culture. This collection of colourful illustration sheds light on her subconscious.
Frida Kahlo’s images are among the most recognisable in modern art. But a collection of illustrations from her diary reflect another world entirely.
For from a straightforward chronicle, the images roam far and wide through the dreams of the artist, but are still so powerfully realised on the page.
The images are from The Diary of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait, published by Abrams.
