Frida (Jonah Winter) - When her mother was worn out from caring for her five sisters, her father gave her lessons in brushwork and color. When polio kept her bedridden for nine months, drawing saved her from boredom. When a bus accident left her in unimaginable agony, her paintings expressed her pain and depression - and eventually, her joys and her loves. Over and over again, Frida Kahlo turned the challenges of her life into art. Now Jonah Winter and Ana Juan have drawn on both the art and the life to create a playful, insightful tribute to one of the twentieth century's most influential artists. Viva Frida!

Vibrant illustrations throughout the book include Rivera's murals and paintings, Kahlo's dreamscapes and self-portraits, pre-Columbian art and Mexican folk art, as well as many photographs of the two artists. Children will learn that art is more than just pretty pictures; it can be a way to express the artist's innermost feelings, a source of everyday joy and fun, an outlet for political ideas, and an expression of hope for a better world.

Frida Kahlo (6 Jul 1907 – 13 Jul 1954) - Frida Kahlo (de Rivera) was the famous Mexican artist who is known as much for her association with Diego Rivera as for her own paintings, most notably her self-portraits. Born of a German Jewish father and a Mexican mother, Frida was early on moved to study medicine. The victim of a devastating bus accident when she was a teenager, Frida took to painting during her long convalescence. The resulting injuries would plague her all her life, leaving her wounded, in pain and in need of multiple surgeries, all of which conditions seeped into her paintings. Her volatile relationship with Rivera, whom she married, divorced, remarried and lived within an uncomfortable form of “open marriage”, was another overwhelming inspiration for her suffering-infused artwork. She died at the young age of forty-seven, and in spite of some significant recognition of her work during her lifetime, it was not until the 1980’s that she achieved the cult status she enjoys today. Embraced by feminists and art lovers alike, perhaps the best assessment of her legacy was uttered in 1938 by fellow artist Andre Breton, who called her work “a ribbon around a bomb”.
