They met in 1928, Frida Kahlo was then twenty-one years old and Diego Rivera was twice her age. He was already an international reference, she only aspired to become one. An intense artistic creation, along with pain and suffering, was generated by this tormented union, in particular for Frida. Constantly in the shadow of her husband, bearing his unfaithfulness and her jealousy, Frida exorcised the pain on canvas, and progressively won the public’s interest. On both continents, America and Europe, these committed artists proclaimed their freedom and left behind them the traces of their exceptional talent. In this book, Gerry Souter brings together both biographies and underlines with passion the link which existed between the two greatest Mexican artists of the 20th century. 'Frida Kahlo' and 'Diego Rivera', by Gerry Souter, published by Parkstone International, New York, 2007, two volumes in slip case, large 4to, also a quantity of other reference works to include artist's biographies.
