My passion for architecture and my love for surrealistic art come together in this enchanting new book by Suzanne Barbezat. Frida Kahlo at Home is an illustrated biography that examines Kahlo's paintings closely and explains their architectural and cultural references. I loved seeing historic photographs of La Casa Azul and other places where Kahlo lived, and Barbezat's book allows me to inhabit the artist's complex and fascinating world.

This is a gorgeous book that I plan to purchase to add to my personal library. I wanted to check a book or two out on Frida before I go see her personal photography collection at the museum and this was one of the few my library had available.

One of the best art history books! Suzanne Barbezat is a wonderful writer and reading this book made me feel like I was next to Frida, observing her life by her side with all her triumphs and her physical and emotional pain.

Barbezat has visual writing style that makes her subject come to life, including des ...more

Piękna. Jeśli szuka się bardziej powieści, to polecam oczywiście genialną książkę Barbary Mujicy "Frida" - opowieść Barbezat to raczej album z bardzo solidnie wykonaną notą biograficzną, pięknie wydany i idealny na prezent.

Czas, cholera, jechać do tego Poznania.
