An exploration of the sources of Mexican popular art and folklore that inspired Frida Kahlo. With its wealth of illustrations, this volume draws revealing connection between Frida’s highly personal work and the traditional and popular art that surrounded her in her early years: ex-votos and retablos, nineteenth-century photography (including that of her father Guillermo Kahlo), Roman Catholic iconography, the corridos of the Mexican Revolution, and the varied production of anonymous artisans.
Essays by Nadia Ugalde and Juan Coronel Rivera analyze relevant themes such as the influence of positivism on Frida’s education and the roots of her indigenismo.
