From the Publisher. Frida Kahlo: Photographs of Myself and Others comprises a cache of rare and never-before-published materials from the collection of interior designer Vicente Wolf. Designed by Sam Shahid, this astonishing collection brings together formal portraits of Kahlo by such luminaries as Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Tina Modotti, Julien Levy, Carl van Vechten and Lucienne Bloch as well as candid snapshots of Frida and Diego at work and at home. Selections from the collection have been featured in the major exhibition, Frida Kahlo, organized by the Walker Art Center and later shown at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. This book presents the most arresting photographs from both the exhibition and the vast treasure trove of heretofore unexhibited pieces, and offers a fresh and captivating look at the iconic artist, her exuberant husband, and their coterie of famous friends.
