Frida Kahlo: Her Universe, published under a joint imprint by Editorial RM and Museo Frida Kahlo, allows us to refresh and bring up to date the rich diversity of themes, ideas, concepts, and emotions generated around two fundamental and iconic figures in modern Mexico: Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.
This edition gathers a range of essays by specialists on the various subjects that surround the figure of Frida Kahlo. Approximations to the material circumstances that surrounded her day to day and her creations.
In addition, almost three hundred images from the archives of Museo Frida Kahlo offer readers a glimpse of Frida’s wardrobe, the collections of popular and pre- Hispanic she assembled alongside Diego Rivera, the Blue House, her connection with photography, and other matters. This volume welcomes us into Frida Kahlo’s universe, exploring the legacy of an indispensable figure in the world of twentieth-century art and culture.
In an unparalleled study and after insightful years of research, this book brings together never-before seen images from Frida Kahlo’s collection in a carefully edited publication.
Many of the images included in the book appeared after 50 years of being kept in the so-called “Frida’s room”, which could not be accessed until 2007.
