The Complete Paintings of Frida Kahlo Are Collected in A Table Book

Frida Kahlo’s every single document, including her never seen works for more than 80 years and photographs from her home, is gathered in a coffee table book from Taschen, Frida Kahlo: The Complete Paintings.

All of 152 documented paintings of Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) have been collected in a massive and elegant book published from Taschen. Frida Kahlo: The Complete Paintings have been complied by Luis- Martín Lozano who is an art historian specialized in Mexico and Latin America.

Including pieces from private collections and lost documents that have not been exhibited for more than 80 years, the book presents one of the most comprehensive Kahlo works to date. It contains all works of artist, that is, it is a study that have never been done in the scope of Frida Kahlo research.

In an interview with Art News, Lozano said, “every single painting is covered—that’s never been done before,”.

“Every single painting is covered—that’s never been done before,” Lozano said in an interview with Art News. “Kahlo’s paintings talk much more about social and historical issues than has been pointed out,” he added.

He also added that Kahlo’s paintings talk much more about social and historical issues that has been pointed out. Therefore, another important point about the book is that it is much more than her paintings. For instance, one of the most important guests of her house was Trotsky. Frida opened her home to Trotsky when he was exiled from Russia. Of course, politicians and intellectuals were guests of this home during Trotsky stayed there.

While Frida Kahlo: The Complete Paintings has a special place among the studies conducted for artist, the book builds a deep connection between the readers and Kahlo giving a different approach to Frida.
