Frida Kahlo: The Story of Her Life

by Vanna Vinci
£19.99   hardback  Prestel (2017)

Frida Kahlo: The Story of Her Life by Vanna Vinci The perfect subject for a graphic novel, Frida Kahlo’s brief life was dramatic and romantic, tragic and painful.
 
In this illustrated “biography”, Vanna Vinci captures the spirit of Kahlo’s world in boldly colored, minutely detailed illustrations. Blending facts and history with dreamlike and surreal sequences, Vinci creates an intimate portrayal of an artist who incorporated her life experiences into her art. Burning love and crushing loss, incredible joy and deep despair — these were all part of Kahlo’s life and part of the paintings that are some of the most celebrated art of all time.
 
Filled with images that populated Kahlo’s work — monkeys and parrots, traditional clothing and lush gardens — Vinci imbues her text and drawings with an artist’s perception and sensitivity. The result is an evocative, fittingly passionate tribute to a legendary figure.
