She was twenty-two- he was forty-three. Hailed as Riveras exotic young wife who dabbles in art, she went on to produce brilliant paintings but remained in her husbands shadow throughout her life.

Today, almost six decades after her untimely death, Kahlos fame rivals that of Rivera and she has gained international acclaim as a path-breaking artist and a cultural icon. Cutting through Fridamania, this book explores Kahlos life, art, and legacies, while also scrutinizing the myths, contradictions, and ambiguities that riddle her dramatic story. Gannit Ankori examines Kahlos early childhood, medical problems, volatile marriage, political affiliations, religious beliefs, and, most important, her unparalleled and innovative art.

Based on detailed analyses of the artists paintings, diary, letters, photographs, medical records, and interviews, the book also assesses Kahlos critical impact on contemporary art and culture. Kahlo was of her time, deeply immersed in the issues that dominated the first half of the twentieth century. Yet, as this book reveals, she was also ahead of her time. Her paintings challenged social norms and broke taboos, addressing themes such as the female body, gender, cross-dressing, hybridity, identity, and trauma in ways that continue to inspire contemporary artists across the globe.

Frida Kahlo is a succinct and powerful account of the life, art and legacy of this iconic artist.
