The perfect subject for a graphic novel, Frida Kahlo's brief life was dramatic and romantic, tragic and painful. In this illustrated "biography", Vanna Vinci captures the spirit of Kahlo's world in boldly colored, minutely detailed illustrations. Blending facts and history with dreamlike and surreal sequences, Vinci creates an intimate portrayal of an artist who incorporated her life experiences into her art. Burning love and crushing loss, incredible joy and deep despair-these were all part of Kahlo's life and part of the paintings that are some of the most celebrated art of all time. Filled with images that populated Kahlo's work-monkeys and parrots, traditional clothing and lush gardens-Vinci imbues her text and drawings with an artist's perception and sensitivity. The result is an evocative, fittingly passionate tribute to a legendary figure.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Prestel has just released Frida: The Story of Her Life, a graphic novel by Vanna Vinci that makes the perfect addition to the visual history of one of the most famous artists in the world. Here Vinci brings to life the beautiful and horrific moments of Kahlo’s life in a series of iconic scenes that integrate her country, her culture, and her passion into a great, tempestuous personality. The result is a portrait of the artist that complements the self-portraits that the world adores, giving us another look at the soul of a woman who continues to inspire and provoke." -Crave"This is an extraordinary way of presenting the story of the life of Frida Kahlo" -Her Campus
