About the book:

Drawing on firsthand sources including collectors, friends, and fellow artists, Hayden Herrera has produced an exhaustive study of the Mexican painters life, loves, and artistry. Letters and diary material add an intimate tone to a tumultuous tale of sex, politics, and marginalization in the world of art.

This audiobook is the definitive study of the life of the volatile and charismatic artist, the subject of a major film starring Salma Hayek and Edward Norton to be released in October 2002. "A haunting, highly vivid biography."  Ms.
