by Carole Maso, Beauty Is Convulsive The Passion Of Frida Kahlo Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Beauty Is Convulsive The Passion Of Frida Kahlo books, Beauty is Convulsive is a biographical meditation on one of the twentieth century's most compelling and famous artists, Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). At the age of nineteen, Kahlo's life was transformed when the bus in which she was riding was hit by a trolley car. Pierced by a steel handrail and broken in many places, she entered a long period of convalescence during which she began to paint self-portraits. In 1928, at twenty-one, she joined the Communist Party and came to know Diego Rivera. The forty-one-year-old Rivera, Mexico's most famous painter, was impressed by the force of Kahlo's personality and by the authenticity of her art, and the two soon married. Though they were devoted to each other, intermittent affairs on both sides, Frida's grief over her inability to bear a child, and her frequent illnesses made the marriage tumultuous. This prose poem is typical Maso--vigorous, daring, always original. She brings together parts of Kahlo's biography, her letters, medical documents, and her diaries with language that is often as erotic and colorful as Kahlo's paintings.:: "Maso's precise and poetic prose ... brims with emotion, imagination, intelligence, and beauty," Review of Contemporary Fiction:: ..". a supple, discerning, and haunting prose poem, a biographical meditation that elegantly charts Kahlo's epic resiliency, artistic daring, unrelenting suffering, soul-saving 'sense of the ridiculous, ' and glorious defiance. Maso's spare yet lyric tribute, a genuine communion, is a welcome antidote to the mawkishness and sensationalism that is starting to blur our appreciation for Kahlo's pioneering art and incandescent spirit," Booklist

by Salomón Grimberg, Frida Kahlo Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Frida Kahlo books, The Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) is considered to be one of the greatest women artists of all time, and her vibrantly colorful work remains hugely popular today. She is best known for her striking self-portraits, through which she depicted her psychological and physical pain after an accident at the age of eighteen left her disabled and unable to bear children. Until now, Kahlo's remarkable still lifes - of which she completed about forty, compared to eighty or so self-portraits - have not been subjected to close scrutiny, despite the fact that they comprised a major part of her creative output. In this groundbreaking study, Kahlo scholar Salomon Grimberg explores in detail all of the artist's documented still lifes, including some that have come to light only recently. Grimberg, a psychiatrist as well as an art historian, offers provocative new perspectives on Kahlo's creative process, and shows how her still lifes both complement her famous self-portraits and serve to reveal her true self. Full of symbolic imagery drawn from pre-Hispanic Mexico and other cultures and belief systems, these stunning works are illustrative of Kahlo's private musings about herself - her loneliness and her preoccupation with death - and the world around her. With beautiful reproductions of all the still lifes, as well as other relevant paintings and drawings by Kahlo and personal photographs, this compelling book is indispensable to understanding the dramatic life and work of an extraordinary woman.
by San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (Calif.)., Frida Kahlo Diego Rivera And Mexican Modernism Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Frida Kahlo Diego Rivera And Mexican Modernism books, The self-portraits of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo are renowned for their dream-like quality and emotional intensity. A passionate woman endowed with an indomitable spirit, Kahlo overcame injury and personal hardship to become one of the world's most important female artists. Celebrated by the surrealists in her own lifetime, she has attained cult-like status both for her extraordinary art and her tempestuous love-life with her husband, Diego Rivera, Mexico's most prominent modern painter. An outstanding selection of paintings by Kahlo and Rivera form the core of this catalogue, which accompanies the National Gallery of Australia's exhibition. Jacques Gelman, the Russian emigre film producer, and his wife, Natasha, built up their collection over many years of acquaintance and collaboration with Mexico's greatest creative artists. It is now widely regarded as the most significant private holding of twentieth century American art.
by Catriona MacLeod, Elective Affinities Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Elective Affinities books, This volume presents the impressive range of scholarly affinities, approaches, and subjects that characterize today's word and image studies. The essays, a selection of papers first presented in 2005 at the seventh international conference of the International Association of Word and Image Studies/Association Internationale pour l'Étude des Rapports entre Texte et Image that took place in Philadelphia, are case studies of the diverse configurations of the textual and the iconic. “Elective affinities” — a notion originally borrowed by Goethe for his 1809 novel of the same title from eighteenth-century chemistry — here refers to the active role of the two partners in the relationship of the pictorial and the verbal. Following the experimental modalities opened up by Goethe, the present volume is divided into three sections, which explore, respectively, how words and images can merge in harmony, engage in conflicts and contestations, and, finally, interact in an experimental way that self-consciously tests the boundaries and relations among verbal and visual arts. New perspectives on word and image relationships emerge, in periods, national traditions, works, and materials as different as (among many others) an installation by Marcel Duchamp and the manual accompanying it; the impact of artificial light sources on literature and art; nineteenth-century British illustrations of Native Americans; the contemporary comic book; a seventeenth-century Italian devotional manuscript uniting text, image, and music; Chinese body and performance art..
