Wow!! There is so much information in this book, don‘t read unless you want to know everything! It took me longer than normal as I had to look at every picture as the book was discussing it.
Frida was compelling, contradictory and complex and I think I‘m a little bit in love with her! I‘m definitely in awe of her.
Fascinating read.

A collection of my favorite #bookmarks! The Frida, MLK, and gold cat have been with me for a long time, and my grandmother made the blue snowflake one. 😃

A day late, because that is just how my life is right now. 😆

#artrelatedbooks- this is one of my favorites! It's such a detailed biography of badass artist. And I also love the movie with Salma Hayek 💗

I couldn't think of too many #artrelatedbooks that I read and was all that excited about (though I almost went with The Goldfinch), but I've had this biography of Frida Kahlo on my want-to-read list forever and I think I'll try to get to it in 2017. I believe the Salma Hayek movie was based specifically on this biography, though I haven't actually seen that movie. #seasonsreadings2016

Great read if you're a fan of Frida! Really interesting insights into her paintings and what was going on in her life at the time she created them.

From my well worn copy: "Painting was part of Frida Khalo's battle for life. It was also part of her self-creation: in her art, as in her life, a theatrical self-presentation was a means to control her world." #booktober #BooksSetinSAmerica

Josie I love Frida and her art work! Such an amazing woman. 3y
Hobbinol @Josie You really have to admire people who have the ferocious kind of courage it takes to mark your own destiny. 3y

"Many of them recall that she always carried a schoolboy's knapsack amounting to "a little world on her back": texts, notebooks, drawings, butterflies and dried flowers, colors, and books printed in gothic script from the library of her father."

MrBook Nice passage! And welcome to @Litsy ! 😊👍🏻 3y

A little different for my #wcw - an amazing biography about a vivid woman! Friday Kahlo seems to be everywhere but without all the fascinating details of her life widely known. A well researched look at Frida's childhood during the Mexican Revolution, a devastating injury, her politics, sexuality and marriage, and of course her artwork!

Bibliogeekery 💜❤️💚 Frida!! 3y
BookishFeminist Frida is amazing! I need to read a biography of her. 3y
prowlix @BookishFeminist I stumbled on the Salem Hayek movie first which I believe was based on this biography. I loved it! 3y

Frida Kahlo, in her summer ensemble (on a file cabinet at the orifice), for #WonderWomanWednesday. Her writings and paintings are so full of passion, imagination/her reality, life.

BekahB That's awesome! She is by far one of my favorite artists. 3y

"Nell'albero da frutta eterno i tuoi frutti regalano gli aromi i tuoi fiori regalano i colori crescendo con la gioia dei venti e dei boccioli. Non smettere di dissetare l'albero di cui sei il sole, l'albero che ha fatto tesoro del tuo seme "Diego" è il nome dell'amore".

Frida Kahlo is one of my favorite artists. I read this when I was very young, probably too young to fully comprehend exactly what she went through. An amazing read about her life from childhood to death. I highly recommend if you are a fan of her art!

MyBookLife Did you see the movie Frida? It's so good ❤️❤️ 3y
Josie I did! I actually saw the movie first and became obsessed! I was only 14 or 15 at the time but I went crazy! The movie and the book match up pretty well, too. It's not often you can say that. 3y
