About the book:

"I was considered a Surrealist. That is not right. I never painted dreams. What I depicted, was my reality." Our book zooms right into this reality, and it does so in a new and unusual way: presenting Frida Kahlo's paintings in a general view and in selected details, it reveals the wealth of stories and creatures hidden in her self-portraits; it makes tangible the life-long physical and spiritual pain endured by the artist; and it illustrates painterly skills and techniques reminiscent of old European masters. Making visible what tends to escape one's notice in her seemingly familiar paintings, this lavish volume takes even inveterate Kahlo fans on a mesmerizing discovery trip to the sensuousness, the beauty, and the abysses of her world.

This monograph presents Frida Kahlo's life and work in pictures. Frida Kahlo expert Helga Prignitz-Poda provides elaborate background information on each of the paintings.
