AsMoreFrida Kahlo: Photographs of Myself and Others comprises a cache of rare and never before-published materials from the Vicente Wolf Collection. Few artists have fully captured the publics imagination with the power of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. As an incomparable artist, political activist, and the wife of celebrated muralist Diego Rivera, Kahlos life was alternately joyous and tragic. This astonishing collection brings together portraits of Kahlo by such luminaries as Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Tina Modotti, Julien Levy, and Lucienne Bloch as well as snapshots of Frida and Diego at work and at home. Selections from the collection have been featured in the major exhibition, Frida Kahlo, organized by the Walker Art Center and later shown at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. This book presents a fresh and captivating look at the iconic artist, her exuberant husband, and their coterie of famous friends.
