Frida Kahlo is arguably the most famous female artist of all time. Beneath the famous eyebrows and feminist reputation, she was also a radical political artist and gender-savvy. Combining surrealism, magical realism, and an indigenous Mexican art style, Kahlo’s paintings are among the most beloved in museum collections around the world. A new volume from TASCHEN titled Frida Kahlo. Complete paintings is a must-see collection of the artist’s work, from his early years in the United States to his later life in the famous Casa Azul.
