For Women's History Month reading, you can't do better than 'Frida Kahlo: Her Universe'

“Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?” Frida Kahlo asked in 1953. Featured photograph, taken in in the library of the Blue House, Coyoacán, Mexico City, in 1949 by Kahlo's nephew Antonio, is from Frida Kahlo: Her Universe, a staff pick for Women's History Month 2022. “Saint, muse, lover, beloved, bisexual, victim and survivor,” essayist Circe Henestrosa writes: “Frida Kahlo is the model of the bohemian artist; unique, rebellious and contradictory, a cult figure appropriated by feminists, artists, fashion designers and mass culture. From Mexico to San Francisco, Paris to New York, Frida continues to cause a sensation with her enigmatic, seductive gaze and deep brown eyes which, dominant yet fragile, pull the viewer indelibly into them. Framed by the personal stamp of her unmistakable eyebrows and Tehuana dress, Frida has everything necessary to have become one of today’s best-known idols.”
