Frida Kahlo: The Last Interview - and Other Conversations

by Frida Kahlo - £12.99  Melville House Publishing (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781612198750 | ISBN 10: 1612198759

Frida Kahlo’s legacy continues to grow in the public imagination in the nearly fifty years since her ”discovery” in the 1970s. This collection of conversations over the course of her brief career allows a peek at the woman behind the hype. And allows us to see the image of herself she carefully crafted for the public.
 
Frida Kahlo is now an icon. In the decades since her death, Kahlo has been celebrated as a proto-feminist, a misunderstood genius, and a leftist hero, but during her lifetime most knew her as... Diego Rivera’s wife.
 
Featuring conversations with American scholar and Marxist, Bertram D. Wolfe, and art critic Raquel Tibol, this collection shows an artist undervalued, but also a woman in control of her image.
 
From her timid beginnings after her first solo show, to a woman who confidently states that she is her only influence, the many faces of Kahlo presented here clearly show us the woman behind the “Fridamania” we know today.
