I was visiting Mexico and heard so much about Frida. This book is a very good description of her life. Loved it

I have read this book from start to finish three times and have gone back to specific chapters on numerous occasions. It has illuminated Frida's life for me like no other work, especially Ankori's insights on the Two Fridas. It is more succinct than some other biographies on Frida, which makes it easier to use as a teaching tool and to recommend to friends who may not want to delve into Herrera's lengthy work. (I also really appreciate that this is available on Kindle whereas Herrera's book is not, making this much easier to read. Frida Kahlo (Critical Lives) also contains new information not available at the time of Herrera's writing and what I think is some very on-point critique of Herrera's work. The only thing truly lacking are color images of Frida's work. I would suggest having a computer close by while you read this so you can look up images as you are reading because the tiny images included in the text do not do Frida's work justice. Ankori's book is a gift to art history and fans of Frida Kahlo.
