María Izquierdo and Frida Kahlo

Challenging Visions in Modern Mexican Art

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.

One of the most important artists of the twentieth century and an icon of courageous womanhood, Frida Kahlo lives on in the public imagination, where her popularity shows no signs of waning. She is renowned for both her paintings and her personal story, which were equally filled with pain and anguish, celebration and life. Thousands of words, including her own, have been written about Kahlo, but only one previous biography has recorded her fascinating, difficult life. Frida Kahlo by María Hesse offers a highly unique way of getting to know the artist by presenting her life in graphic novel form, with striking illustrations that reimagine many of Kahlo’s famous paintings. Originally published in Spanish in 2016, Frida Kahlo has already found an enthusiastic audience in the Spanish-speaking world, with some 20,000 copies sold in just a few months. This translation introduces English-language readers to Kahlo’s life, from her childhood and the traumatic accident that would change her life and her artwork, to her complicated love for Diego Rivera and the fierce determination that drove her to become a major artist in her own right. María Hesse tells the story in a first-person narrative, which captures both the depths of Frida’s suffering and her passion for art and life.

The Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) is considered to be one of the greatest women artists of all time, and her vibrantly colorful work remains hugely popular today. She is best known for her striking self-portraits, through which she depicted her psychological and physical pain after an accident at the age of eighteen left her disabled and unable to bear children. Until now, Kahlo's remarkable still lifes - of which she completed about forty, compared to eighty or so self-portraits - have not been subjected to close scrutiny, despite the fact that they comprised a major part of her creative output. In this groundbreaking study, Kahlo scholar Salomon Grimberg explores in detail all of the artist's documented still lifes, including some that have come to light only recently. Grimberg, a psychiatrist as well as an art historian, offers provocative new perspectives on Kahlo's creative process, and shows how her still lifes both complement her famous self-portraits and serve to reveal her true self. Full of symbolic imagery drawn from pre-Hispanic Mexico and other cultures and belief systems, these stunning works are illustrative of Kahlo's private musings about herself - her loneliness and her preoccupation with death - and the world around her. With beautiful reproductions of all the still lifes, as well as other relevant paintings and drawings by Kahlo and personal photographs, this compelling book is indispensable to understanding the dramatic life and work of an extraordinary woman.
