Pain and Passion

The complete paintings of Frida Kahlo in an XXL edition
Among the few women artists who have transcended art history, none had a meteoric rise quite like Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907–1954). Her unmistakable face, depicted in over fifty extraordinary self-portraits, has been admired by generations; along with hundreds of photographs taken by notable artists such as Edward Weston, Manuel and Lola Álvarez Bravo, Nickolas Muray, and Martin Munkácsi, they made Frida Kahlo an iconic image of 20th century art.

After an accident in her early youth, Frida became a painter of her own free will. Her marriage to Diego Rivera in 1929 placed her at the forefront of an artistic scene not only in the cultural Renaissance of Mexico, but also in the United States. Her work garnered praise from the poet André Breton, who added the Mexican painter to the ranks of international surrealism and exhibited her work in Paris in 1939 to the admiration of Picasso, Kandinsky, and Duchamp.

We access the intimacy of Frida’s affections and passions through a selection of drawings, pages from her personal diary, letters, and an extensive illustrated biography featuring photos of Frida, Diego, and the Casa Azul, Frida’s home and the center of her universe.

This large-format XXL book allows readers to admire Frida Kahlos paintings like never before, including unprecedented detail shots and famous photographs. It presents pieces in private collections and reproduces works that were previously lost or have not been exhibited for more than 80 years, forming the most extensive study of Kahlos work and life to date.

This book arrives in a box that gets you excited before you even open it - the image of Frida in grand form on the outside. Then to open the box and see such a large and stunning book that is incredibly done, I was beyond thrilled with my purchase. The images are amazing and the words from the authors, profound. You can feel so much soul in this book. I found myself captivated while only a few pages in. This book pulls you into another universe of Frida. It is simply beautiful.

The definitive book on Frida Kahlo

Alex, October 27, 2021
The most comprehensive book on Frida Kahlo you will find, representing 30 years of research as well as including works by the artist that were once thought lost.

FINALLY a collection of some of the greatest art by this amazing artist

Michael, October 27, 2021
I have been waiting for a book like this forever. I came upon Frida Kahlo's work through the work of Diego Rivera. After the movie of her life came out the public finally recognized her as a major artist. TASCHEN has done a wonderful job of putting together her art in the volume. I knew they would do her justice as they did with the volume of Diego Rivera's murals (one of my favorite TASCHEN books and a masterpiece of publishing). Frida has received the same care in this volume.

Magnificent

David, October 27, 2021
Taschen has done it again with the publication of Frida Kahlo's The Complete Paintings. This is a significant contribution to the gathering of work in one place and places the work in the context of a full, creative life. Kudos!!!

Ein rundum schönes Buch

Karsten Meyer, October 27, 2021
Ich bin angenehm überrascht von der Fülle an Material und auch der Details. Es ist in meinen Augen ein umfassendes Werk, welches das Leben dieser vom Leid geprüften und doch so lebensbejahenden starken Künstlerpersönlichkeit sehr gut darstellt, es ist ja auch eine visuelle Kunst, die uns Frida Kahlo in ihren Bildern hinterlässt.

Wow

Ryan, October 27, 2021
