A substantial survey of the distinctive oeuvre of celebrated Mexican Surrealist Kahlo (1907-1954), this catalogue presents full-page reproductions of some 70 paintings and drawings produced by the artist from 1923 to 1951 while also illuminating the cultural and artistic context of her career through illustrations of Pre-Columbian sculptures, Mexican votive paintings, and works by 18 of her contemporaries, among them Rivera, Tamayo, Carrington and Orozco. A detailed biographical chronology supplements eight essays that include an overview of Kahlo's imagery and autobiographical themes, a description of the Blue House (her lifelong residence in Mexico City), and discussions of the personal and physical tribulations reflected in her many self-portraits.
