Frida Kahlo The Paintings review ß eBook or Kindle ePUB In small stunningly rendered self–portraits Mexican artist Frida Kahlo painted herself cracked open hemorrhaging during a miscarriage anesthetized on a hospital gurney and weeping beside her own extracted heartHer works are so incendiary in emotion and subject matter that one art critic suggested the walls of an exhibition be covered with asbestosIn this beautiful book art historian Hayden Herrera brings together numerous paintings and sketches by the amazing Mexican artist documenting each with explanatory text that probes the. 2020 ReviewNew star rating 25 for text 5 for paintings and photographs Frida Kahlo The Paintings by Hayden Herrera is considered a companion volume to her Frida A Biography of Frida Kahlo The Paintings contains a summarized version of the text from the biography but is accompanied by larger reproductions of Kahlo s paintings other drawings and photographs If you ve read the biography the only reason to buy or read this book is to examine the paintings in detail Herrera includes most of Kahlo s well known paintings and many of her lesser known ones The larger color reproductions allow you to see the details of the paintings clearly I also liked looking at the photographs Kahlo was an incredibly photogenic woman Not necessarily beautiful but her gaze is very intense and she is compelling subject What s objectionable about the book is Herrera s analysis of the paintings In almost every painting or illustration she defines them as visual representations of Kahlo s emotional andor physical pain Herrera goes too far in claiming to know what Kahlo was thinking or feeling by ascribing every brush stroke as a way for Kahlo to express her pain Herrera does not take into account Kahlo s political motivationsinterests or her Mexican background ie the history and politics of Mexico In fact Herrera states Until 1954 Frida had painted only one uasi political painting 215 I find this an odd statement Based on Herrera s own biography she considers My Dress Hangs There and Self Portrait on the Border Line Between Mexico and the United States to have at least some political expression Herrera also theorizes that Kahlo was a narcissist who used her illnesses to gain sympathy and tie Diego Riveria her philandering husband to her side Not only did Kahlo use her pain as a way to gain attention but she also created illness when necessary Very likely she sabotaged her well being by choosing to have unnecessary operations as a peculiar form of narcissism Having operations was a cry for attention Being a surgical patient could alleviate her feelings of disconnectionEach new operation brought her admiration and sympathy and most important the attention of Diego 194 Herrera also analyzes almost every painting as having a very distinct and direct connection to Catholicism a religion that Kahlo rejected as a child I don t care for Herrera s incredibly simple and limited analysis of Kahlo s paintings as being narcissist reflections of her own pain In this book as opposed to her Frida Kahlo Biography Herrera completely disregards and does not explore any other reasons for Kahlo to paint except as a way to express her pain and troubles of being childless which many other critics disagree with and having a cheating husband it s a very sexist perspective of Kahlo s body work as it denies Kahlo s knowledge of the wider world and her ability to think beyond her own personal troubles I would suggest that anyone looking to read about Kahlo s life and her artwork not rely on this book Herrera s biography is much in depth and while I do disagree with her artartist analysis in that book as well at least she expands on that and includes complex analyses I suggest Devouring Frida The Art History and Popular Celebrity of Frida Kahlo by Margaret A Lindauer for a complex exploration of Kahlo s paintings The language can be a little difficult and scholarly but it s worth taking the time I would also suggest Frida in America The Creative Awakening of a Great Artist by Celia Stahr The author examines in detail the years Kahlo spent in the United States with Diego Riveria while he completed his mural commissions I wasn t crazy about the book but it does provide a different perspective on Kahlo particularly the idea that she was devastated by her inability to be a mother Stahr has convincing evidence that Kahlo had to decide between being either a painter or a mother and landed suarely on the side of being a painter Older ReviewAbsolutely love her paintings Was lucky enough to see the Kahlo exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art a few years ago Amazing experience
