Published in its entirety, Frida Kahlo’s diary reflects the last ten years of a turbulent life. This document, at some times passionate, at others surprising and intimate, kept under lock and key for approximately forty years, reveals new features of the complex personality of this outstanding Mexican artist.
Published by La Vaca Independiente and distributed exclusively by Editorial RM, this personal document, published in a full-colour facsimile, provides a new approach to a better understanding of this Mexican artist’s original and energetic vision of the world.
The facsimile is accompanied by an introduction by the prestigious Mexican writer Carlos Fuentes and a transcription of the diary’s contents. Finally, the book includes an essay by Sarah M. Lowe on the importance of this memoir to Frida Kahlo’s total oeuvre and to art history in general, as well as a series of commentaries by the writer on the images.
