Frida Kahlo... Artist, Innovator, Rebel, Admired Icon!

Artfully written by Gail Bellamy and Vicki Draeger, and translated by Sonia Dolores Estrada Morales, this book goes inside Frida’s thoughts for a glimpse of her motivations and beliefs, often using her own words. Like any Frida Kahlo book, it contains references to her over-the-top romantic adventures. Please preview.
