Frida Kahlo and San Francisco : Constructing Her Identity – This book marks Frida Kahlo’s triumphant return to San Francisco, the city where her artistic life began to unfold. Frida Kahlo’s stays in the United States were brief, but formative. It was in the California city – the first she visited in the United States – that she ventured into a new world beyond the confines of Coyoacán, Mexico City and Cuernavaca. Kahlo first visited San Francisco in 1930 with her husband Diego Rivera and stayed for a year. It was love at first sight. She enjoyed the beauty of the city and savored its ethnic diversity. In particular, it was there that Kahlo began to shape her indigenous (and now iconic) Mexican identity. She refined her style of dress, improved her political and social worldview, and began to paint in earnest. The splendid catalog includes essays on Kahlo’s role as an artist and her time in San Francisco, as well as a selection of the artist’s works and photographs of her.
