If you are an artist like me, and you are looking for a good book to add to your collection about Frida I recommend this one. Its full of reproductions of her art, which is what I wanted the most, and a basic history of her life. It has the most bang for the buck in my opinion. I have other books that were more writing than pictures, and more expensive. I want to have a collection of her artwork, and this is a great book for that reason.

Format: Paperback
After watching the Bio-Pic "Frida" (2002), Director: Julie Taymor, based on the book "Frida : A Biography of Frida Kahlo by Hayden Herrera, I decided it wad time to read more of this Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) who married Diego Rivera and was an artist in her own write.

This book, "Frida Kahlo 1907-1954: Pain and Passion" by Andrea Kettenmann, Is a great and informative introduction to Kahlo, her art and the person behind the art. Not to sound shallow but the color reproductions and the photos are worth the purchase price on their own. However knowing what they are trying to portray always ads that extra meaning.

No matter what book or movie you buy this is an added must to your library and a different look at the life and times of Freda.

"Frida Kahlo 1907-1954: Pain And Passion" travels through her life and turbulances through her many paintings she drew throughout her life. This book is more than just her paintings. The auther shares the story of the inspiration of her every paintings. She shares everything in great detail that is highly accurate to Kahlo's living. Every page shows how Kahlo has inspired a generation of artists ranging beyond painting. It's great that the author wrote this book since many are unaware of Kahlo's work. Her words keep Kahlo's art and her life alive. This book is great for those looking to get inspired and to learn about this genius painter. Those wanting more should also watch the movie "Frida", starring Selma Hayak as Frida Kahlo.

Simply love it. Great photos and depictions of Frida's work. Only issue is that sometimes a painting is being described a few pages before or after it appears, which makes it a bit annoying to be flipping back and forth between the text and the picture. There's also not much chronology either...but it's easy to get past.

Expected it be more of an in depth biography than a picture book. Not what I wanted on the subject.
