Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos

Amazon.com Rating:

The fascinating Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is remembered for her self-portraits, her dramatic works featuring bold and vibrant colors. Her work brought attention to Mexican and indigenous culture and she is also renowned for her works celebrating the female form.

In this book, author Monica Brown celebrates the animals that inspired Kahlo's art and life. As she mentions each of Frida's beloved pets -- two monkeys, a parrot, three dogs, two turkeys, an eagle, a black cat, and a fawn -- she playfully considers how Frida embodied many wonderful characteristics of each animal.

Description

"Along with highlighting Kahlo’s tender interactions with the animals, Brown shows how art buoyed her during difficult times, including a bus accident at age 18 that left her with persistent health problems. Parra’s warm, weathered paintings are done in a flattened, folk-art style that vividly evokes the Mexican environment and 'heritage of which she was very proud.'" -- Publishers Weekly
