Although her body of work is relatively small, Frida Kahlo has inspired adoration and admiration that few other artists have attained. This accessible and elegant book offers full page reproductions of a selection of her works, allowing for a broad appreciation of Kahlo's use of color, composition, and texture. The biographical text informs readers of her early career, when a bus accident left her bedridden and plagued by pain, but also afforded her the chance to discover herself through painting. It follows her life, her personal relationships, and her years in America. Eckhard Hollmann explores the many themes and images of Kahlo's work, from physical and emotional pain, to Mexican and indigenous folklore, to the flora and fauna of her beloved home. Never shying away from expressing her deepest fears and desires, championing the downtrodden with dignity and passion, Frida Kahlo remains an inspiration to any artist aiming to be true to herself while struggling against personal and political limitation.

This brilliant introduction to Henri Matisse, one of the 20th century’s most renowned artists, will help you discover the man, his art and his artistic legacy. From his earliest pointillist-influenced paintings to his mature and playful paper cut-outs; from enormous, ebullient murals to reverent stained glass—Henri Matisse was renowned for his dramatic use of color and fluid draftsmanship. Thirty of Matisse’s most beloved works are given close attention in this introduction that explores the varying tensions of the artist’s oeuvre—his embrace of pure color, patterns, and texture; the languorous pleasures of the Cote d’Azur; displays of sensual pleasure; tranquil scenes of domestic life and monuments to religious life. An engaging biography takes readers through every phase of Matisse’s career and reveals how his aversion to troubling or depressing subject matter was in direct opposition to the radical spirit of his work.
