FRIDA KAHLO is probably the most idolized artist of her time. At the root of the scholarly speculation and pop-culture paraphernalia lies Frida Kahlo: An Open Life, first published in Mexico in 1983. This irreplaceable, eclectic collection reveals the complexities, profound sadness, and immutable creative spirit of the famed Mexican artist. The intimate picture of the often enigmatic Kahlo presented in this book has become an invaluable source for Kahlo scholars. Raquel Tibol, one of Mexico's most respected art critics and art historians, befriended Diego Rivera in Chile and in 1953 came with him to Mexico City, where she met and interviewed Frida Kahlo a year before Kahlo's death. She lived with Kahlo for a while at Coyoacan in Mexico City and then for a time at Rivera's San Angel Inn home. Frida Kahlo: An Open Life uses medical records, journals, letters, interviews, and personal recollections to bring us closer than ever to the Mexican artist and her milieu. Elinor Randall's translation makes Tibol's rich portrait of the remarkable Frida Kahlo available in English for the first time.

Behind Frida Kahlo’s portraits, lies the story of both her life and work. It is precisely this combination that draws the reader in. Frida’s work is a record of her life, and rarely can we learn so much about an artist from what she records inside the picture frame. Frida Kahlo truly is Mexico’s gift to the history of art. She was just eighteen years old when a terrible bus accident changed her life forever, leaving her handicapped and burdened with constant physical pain. But her explosive character, raw determination and hard work helped to shape her artistic talent. And although he was an obsessive womanizer, the great painter Diego Rivera was by her side. She won him over with her charm, talent and intelligence, and Kahlo learnt to lean on the success of her companion in order to explore the world, thus creating her own legacy whilst finding herself surrounded by a close-knit group of friends. Her personal life was turbulent, as she frequently left her relationship with Diego to one side whilst she cultivated her own bisexual relationships. Despite this, Frida and Diego managed to save their frayed relationship. The story and the paintings that Frida left us display a courageous account of a woman constantly on a search of self discovery.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Spanische Sprache, Literatur, Landeskunde, Note: 1,7, Ruprecht-Karls-Universitat Heidelberg (Romanisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Mujeres en America Latina, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mit dem im Jahre 2002 erschienen Kinofilm Frida von Regisseurin Julie Taymor, bescherte man der mexikanischen Malerin aus dem 20. Jahrhundert nicht nur eine populare Ruckkehr, sondern immigrierte sie damit auch nach Europa. Die Rolle der Kahlo gehorte zu einer der begehrtesten Frauenrollen fur eine Kinoverfilmung in den letzten Jahren. Ausser Madonna erregte sie zuletzt auch das Begehren von Jennifer Lopez. Mit Salma Hayek, geboren in Veracruz, in der Hauptrolle wurde der Film mit zwei Oscars und einem Golden Globe ausgezeichnet. Seit dem spricht man von einer regelrechten Fridamanie. Doch soll in dieser Arbeit nicht etwa die Rezension eines Filmes entstehen, sondern vielmehr die Personlichkeit der Frida Kahlo unter die Lupe genommen werden. Neben ihrer Tatigkeit als Kunstlerin war sie vor allem eine Frau, die sich mit dem Leben in Mexiko und dessen politischen Gegebenheiten auseinander zu setzten hatte. Dank einer guten Quellenlage, bestehend aus einem Gemalten Tagebuch, zahlreichen Briefen und ihren Gemalden als ebenso wertvolle Zeugnisse, ist ihr Leben und ihre Zeit gut zuganglich. Daruber hinaus befindet sich ihr Haus, La Casa Azul, nach wie vor in Coyoacan und vermittelt den Besuchern des Museums einen guten Einblick in Frida und ihre Welt."

Carr, a Canadian, O'Keeffe, an American, and Kahlo, a Mexican, were not close during their lives, but Udall (an independent art historian in Santa Fe, New Mexico), in this carefully reasoned and illuminating study, effectively brings many aspects of the artists' works together to demonstrate a kind of zeitgeist they shared as women developing often surprisingly similar, non-traditional themes in the 1920s. Links between their works are developed in the areas of nationalism, identity, gender, nature, and self through discussion of their paintings, psychology, and artistic influences.

Frida Kahlo stepped into the limelight in 1929 when she married Mexican muralist Diego Rivera. She was twenty-two; he was forty-three. Hailed as Rivera’s exotic young wife who “dabbles in art,” she went on to produce brilliant paintings but remained in her husband’s shadow throughout her life. Today, almost six decades after her untimely death, Kahlo’s 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 Kahlo’s life, art, and legacies, while also scrutinizing the myths, contradictions, and ambiguities that riddle her dramatic story. Gannit Ankori examines Kahlo’s early childhood, medical problems, volatile marriage, political affiliations, religious beliefs, and, most important, her unparalleled and innovative art. Based on detailed analyses of the artist’s paintings, diary, letters, photographs, medical records, and interviews, the book also assesses Kahlo’s 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.

María Izquierdo and Frida Kahlo

Challenging Visions in Modern Mexican Art

Author: Nancy Deffebach

Publisher: University of Texas Press

Page: 251

María Izquierdo (1902–1955) and Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) were the first two Mexican women artists to achieve international recognition. During the height of the Mexican muralist movement, they established successful careers as easel painters and created work that has become an integral part of Mexican modernism. Although the iconic Kahlo is now more famous, the two artists had comparable reputations during their lives. Both were regularly included in major exhibitions of Mexican art, and they were invariably the only women chosen for the most important professional activities and honors. In a deeply informed study that prioritizes critical analysis over biographical interpretation, Nancy Deffebach places Kahlo's and Izquierdo's oeuvres in their cultural context, examining the ways in which the artists participated in the national and artistic discourses of postrevolutionary Mexico. Through iconographic analysis of paintings and themes within each artist's oeuvre, Deffebach discusses how the artists engaged intellectually with the issues and ideas of their era, especially Mexican national identity and the role of women in society. In a time when Mexican artistic and national discourses associated the nation with masculinity, Izquierdo and Kahlo created images of women that deconstructed gender roles, critiqued the status quo, and presented more empowering alternatives for women. Deffebach demonstrates that, paradoxically, Kahlo and Izquierdo became the most successful Mexican women artists of the modernist period while most directly challenging the prevailing ideas about gender and what constitutes important art.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Lateinamerikanische Sprachen, Literatur, Landeskunde, Note: 1,3, Universitat Leipzig (Institut fur Romanistik), Veranstaltung: Frida Kahlo: Korper - transmediale u. Kultur-Strategien bei Frida Kahlo: Tagebuch, Malerei, Briefe, Essays, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Ausgehend vom Konzept der Hybriditat und der Kategorie des Korpers wird das Bild Henry Ford Hospital von Frida Kahlo analysiert. Dabei wird zuerst auf den transversalen Wissenschaftsbegriff eingegangen. Mithilfe der Kategorien der Hybriditat, der Transmedialitat und des Korpers wird die artistische Stromung des Surrealismus, im besonderen des mexikanischen Surrealismus, gedeutet. Daran anschliessend wird die biografische und historische Situation der Frida Kahlo dargestellt und eine Interpretation ihres Werkes Henry Ford Hospital in Bezug auf die hybride Komposition versucht, wobei besonders die Korperdarstellung ihrer selbst von Bedeutung ist. Auch wenn Frida Kahlo nie etwas anderes wollte, als sich selbst darzustellen, kann man in ihren Arbeiten nicht nur surrealistische, sondern auch eine Kombination mythologischer, christlicher und politischer Elemente finden. Dieses Werk Frida Kahlos vereint verschiedene Elemente, ohne dass sie sich dessen beim Malen bewusst war, die sie aber heute, im Zeitalter der Globalisierung, zu einem interessanten Untersuchungsobjekt der transversalen Forschung machen. Este texto presenta la interpretacion de la autora al cuadro Henry Ford Hospital de la pintora mexicana Frida Kahlo. El cuadro fue pintado en el ano 1932 mientras esta se encontraba en hospital despues de un aborto involuntario. Addicional a la intepretacion del cuadro con respecto a las experiencias personales de Frida Kahlo, se aplica la teoria de hibridez propuesta por Alfonso de Toro para la interpretacion del cuadro cuyo principio se basa en la identificacion y explicacion de los elementos hibridos

Die erste illustrierte Biografie von Frida Kahlo: Inspiriert von der Intensität Frida Kahlos und ihren bekanntesten Bildern erzählt die spanische Künstlerin María Hesse in einer reich illustrierten Biografie vom Lieben und Schaffen der mexikanischen Ikone. Ihre Zeichnungen, die mit jenen Frida Kahlos eine beinahe magische Symbiose eingehen, werfen ein ganz besonderes Licht auf dieses einzigartige Leben. Ein Körper, gezeichnet von Schmerz und Leidenschaft, eine Fantasie bevölkert von betörenden wie verstörenden Bildern, ein begeisterungsfähiger und beharrlicher Blick auf die Welt – Frida Kahlos Anziehungskraft ist nach wie vor ungebrochen. Mit einer unvergleichlichen Willenskraft trotze sie den Bürden, die ihr das Leben zumutete, lebte mit einem freien Geist, liebte mit offenem Herzen und schuf Kunstwerke von einer strahlenden Wirkmacht. Für die Weigerung, im Schatten ihrer großen Liebe Diego Rivera zu leben, und für ihren mutigen Bruch mit den gesellschaftlichen Konventionen wird Frida Kahlo noch heute auf der ganzen Welt verehrt.

Genauso wenig erscheint es sinnvoll, nur einen Teil ihrer Person oder ihrer Arbeiten isoliert zu betrachten, da es gerade die Querverweise und intertextuellen Bezuge sind, die die Gesamtheit ihrer Faszination ausmachen. Die Kunstlerin, die zu den bedeutendsten Mexikos zahlt und letztes Jahr 100 Jahre alt geworden ware, wird oft als Malerin des Schmerzes" oder Malerin wider das Leiden" bezeichnet, dabei ist sie viel mehr. Ihre bewegte Biographie und die Verarbeitung von Schicksalsschlagen und sowohl korperlichen als auch seelischen Qualen sind sicher ein wesentlicher Bestandteil ihrer Kunst und nicht zuletzt auch mitverantwortlich fur das breite Interesse an ihr, doch wurde man ihr mit einer Reduzierung darauf Unrecht tun."
