    1. La vida de Frida Kahlo ha dado para mucho, en este libro se muestran sus pinturas y y escuetamente su vida, desde su infancia hasta la vida con su marido Diego Rivera.En sus obras se aprecia una fuerza extraordinaria, unos colores vibrantes en los que detalla sin tapujos sus sufrimientos y los de otros, sin temor a la muerte pero también con mucha fuerza ante la vida.Una mujer de carácter, tanto en lo personal como en su pinturay buen libro para ir abriendo boca del mundo Kahlo.


    2. Reading Andrea Kettenmann' s Kahlo brings back good memory of visiting La Casa Azul in summer 2015. Before visiting Museo Frida Kahlo, my only knowledge of the amazing artist came only from the movie Frida (2002) starring Salma Hayek. But even so, it was a fairly long time ago when first watching it that I could barely remember much.Seeing paintings and almost original infrastructure and status of the house in my own eyes, I started to get a sense of how Frida' s life was although I did not thin [...]


    3. This has made me want to go to a costumed party as Frida. She was so beautiful.Now back to the book! That was a very interesting read, not too complicated, not too "you should know what I'm talking about" just perfect for someone who wants to learn about a great painter in a cool and agreeable way. I just would have liked the illustrations on the page where they were mentioned because going back and forth between pages was really terrible. Other than that, I am very happy with this Taschen book, [...]


    4. Puikiai susisteminta informacija, kokybiškos nuotraukos ir reprodukcijos bei malonus leidimas, kurį vis vartysiu ir vartysiu :)Neapsakomos stiprybės asmenybė,kuri be galo įkvepia. Dabar beliko tik aplankyti jos namus Meksikoje, Coyoacán'e !


    5. "I hope the exit is joyful" - Frida KhaloA comprehensive introduction to the life and works of Mexico's most well-known painter. Like most people, I knew a bit about Khalo, and could recognise some of her works, but this book showed me things I had no idea about and allowed me to put my understanding of Frida into a cultural, political, and personal context. A wonderful place to start if you want to learn more about Frida Khalo. Sidenote: She had an affair with Trotsky and this knowledge has for [...]


    6. Gelungenes Buch über die Künstlerin Frida Kahlo. Zahlreiche Bilder untermalen den informativen Text. Ein Punkt Abzug, weil ich mir gerne einen Bildband gewünscht hätte mit einer kompletten Aufzählung und Darstellung ihrer Kunstwerke



    7. A book about Frida Kahlo that isn't about Diego Rivera! Unlike a lot of biographical work on Frida Kahlo (or at least the media I have encountered), Kettenmann focuses on Frida's relationship withherself- which is what Frida Kahlo's artwork was about. Kettenmann makes it a point to establish Frida's relationship with her identity as a Mexican woman, communist, bisexual, etc. I highly recommend buying this book. Not only are the prints fantastic quality, but it serves as a just, brief guide to on [...]
