Description

This brilliant graphic novel artfully depicts the life and passions of Frida Kahlo, one of the 20th century’s most enigmatic artists. Frida Kahlo’s brief life was dramatic and romantic, tragic and painful, and 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 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.

AUTHOR: Vanna Vinci is the author of numerous graphic novels for adults and children, including her internationally acclaimed biography of artist Tamara de Lempicka. She lives in Bologna, Italy.
