Frida Kahlo: de Young Exhibition Catalogue

Frida Kahlo (1907–1954), as an artist and a woman, has a unique international appeal. Her instantly recognizable work draws extensively on her life and her extraordinarily personal reflections upon it.

On Kahlo’s death, her husband, Diego Rivera (1886–1957), ordered that her most private possessions be locked away until 15 years after his death. The bathroom in which her belongings were stored in fact remained unopened until 2004. Through this incredible archive, Frida Kahlo gives readers a unique window into Kahlo’s life and serves as the official exhibition catalogue for Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving at the de Young in San Francisco. The catalogue focuses on the personal belongings of Frida Kahlo, showcasing her prosthetics, jewelry, and wardrobe with self-portraits, diary entries, and letters to build an intimate portrait of the artist through her possessions, setting this in the context of her political and social beliefs and her artistic output. Special de Young edition. Hardcover, 256 pages.

All sale items are final sale and not returnable.

    Frida Kahlo de Young Exhibition

    What a wonderful library table book to display and enjoy. I purchased several books for gifts to friends, They were so floored over the beautiful details and information about the great artist. The in depth beauty of her paintings are stellar. I thank you for bringing such fine photographs of Ms. Kahlo. I may buy more for friends and families.

    Frida Kahlo Exhibition Catalogue is Exceptional

    This catalogue is a wealth of photographs, clever inserts and visual beauty. Frida has been my muse for many years. This book is like a collection of treasure as far as I'm concerned. After a year of waiting to see the show, I was finally able to attend a few days ago. It was and is a superb experience to see the exotic clothing, the paintings, the photos and Frida's personal effects up close. This book will help me to remember the experience.
