Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Spanische Sprache, Literatur, Landeskunde, Note: 1,7, Ruprecht-Karls-Universitat Heidelberg (Romanisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Mujeres en America Latina, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mit dem im Jahre 2002 erschienen Kinofilm Frida von Regisseurin Julie Taymor, bescherte man der mexikanischen Malerin aus dem 20. Jahrhundert nicht nur eine populare Ruckkehr, sondern immigrierte sie damit auch nach Europa. Die Rolle der Kahlo gehorte zu einer der begehrtesten Frauenrollen fur eine Kinoverfilmung in den letzten Jahren. Ausser Madonna erregte sie zuletzt auch das Begehren von Jennifer Lopez. Mit Salma Hayek, geboren in Veracruz, in der Hauptrolle wurde der Film mit zwei Oscars und einem Golden Globe ausgezeichnet. Seit dem spricht man von einer regelrechten Fridamanie. Doch soll in dieser Arbeit nicht etwa die Rezension eines Filmes entstehen, sondern vielmehr die Personlichkeit der Frida Kahlo unter die Lupe genommen werden. Neben ihrer Tatigkeit als Kunstlerin war sie vor allem eine Frau, die sich mit dem Leben in Mexiko und dessen politischen Gegebenheiten auseinander zu setzten hatte. Dank einer guten Quellenlage, bestehend aus einem Gemalten Tagebuch, zahlreichen Briefen und ihren Gemalden als ebenso wertvolle Zeugnisse, ist ihr Leben und ihre Zeit gut zuganglich. Daruber hinaus befindet sich ihr Haus, La Casa Azul, nach wie vor in Coyoacan und vermittelt den Besuchern des Museums einen guten Einblick in Frida und ihre Welt."

Genre: Art

FRIDA KAHLO is probably the most idolized artist of her time. At the root of the scholarly speculation and pop-culture paraphernalia lies Frida Kahlo: An Open Life, first published in Mexico in 1983. This irreplaceable, eclectic collection reveals the complexities, profound sadness, and immutable creative spirit of the famed Mexican artist. The intimate picture of the often enigmatic Kahlo presented in this book has become an invaluable source for Kahlo scholars. Raquel Tibol, one of Mexico's most respected art critics and art historians, befriended Diego Rivera in Chile and in 1953 came with him to Mexico City, where she met and interviewed Frida Kahlo a year before Kahlo's death. She lived with Kahlo for a while at Coyoacan in Mexico City and then for a time at Rivera's San Angel Inn home. Frida Kahlo: An Open Life uses medical records, journals, letters, interviews, and personal recollections to bring us closer than ever to the Mexican artist and her milieu. Elinor Randall's translation makes Tibol's rich portrait of the remarkable Frida Kahlo available in English for the first time.

Genre: Art

Behind Frida Kahlo’s portraits, lies the story of both her life and work. It is precisely this combination that draws the reader in. Frida’s work is a record of her life, and rarely can we learn so much about an artist from what she records inside the picture frame. Frida Kahlo truly is Mexico’s gift to the history of art. She was just eighteen years old when a terrible bus accident changed her life forever, leaving her handicapped and burdened with constant physical pain. But her explosive character, raw determination and hard work helped to shape her artistic talent. And although he was an obsessive womanizer, the great painter Diego Rivera was by her side. She won him over with her charm, talent and intelligence, and Kahlo learnt to lean on the success of her companion in order to explore the world, thus creating her own legacy whilst finding herself surrounded by a close-knit group of friends. Her personal life was turbulent, as she frequently left her relationship with Diego to one side whilst she cultivated her own bisexual relationships. Despite this, Frida and Diego managed to save their frayed relationship. The story and the paintings that Frida left us display a courageous account of a woman constantly on a search of self discovery.

Release Date: 2000
Genre: Art

Carr, a Canadian, O'Keeffe, an American, and Kahlo, a Mexican, were not close during their lives, but Udall (an independent art historian in Santa Fe, New Mexico), in this carefully reasoned and illuminating study, effectively brings many aspects of the artists' works together to demonstrate a kind of zeitgeist they shared as women developing often surprisingly similar, non-traditional themes in the 1920s. Links between their works are developed in the areas of nationalism, identity, gender, nature, and self through discussion of their paintings, psychology, and artistic influences.

Mar a Izquierdo and Frida Kahlo

Author: Nancy Deffebach
Publisher: University of Texas Press
ISBN: 9781477300503
Release Date: 2015-08-15
Genre: Art

María Izquierdo (1902–1955) and Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) were the first two Mexican women artists to achieve international recognition. During the height of the Mexican muralist movement, they established successful careers as easel painters and created work that has become an integral part of Mexican modernism. Although the iconic Kahlo is now more famous, the two artists had comparable reputations during their lives. Both were regularly included in major exhibitions of Mexican art, and they were invariably the only women chosen for the most important professional activities and honors. In a deeply informed study that prioritizes critical analysis over biographical interpretation, Nancy Deffebach places Kahlo's and Izquierdo's oeuvres in their cultural context, examining the ways in which the artists participated in the national and artistic discourses of postrevolutionary Mexico. Through iconographic analysis of paintings and themes within each artist's oeuvre, Deffebach discusses how the artists engaged intellectually with the issues and ideas of their era, especially Mexican national identity and the role of women in society. In a time when Mexican artistic and national discourses associated the nation with masculinity, Izquierdo and Kahlo created images of women that deconstructed gender roles, critiqued the status quo, and presented more empowering alternatives for women. Deffebach demonstrates that, paradoxically, Kahlo and Izquierdo became the most successful Mexican women artists of the modernist period while most directly challenging the prevailing ideas about gender and what constitutes important art.
