A stunning evocation of life in the Blue House with Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, complete with more than 100 recipes, 92 new full-color photographs, plus vintage black & whites and reproductions of some of Frida's best-loved still lifes.
In the tradition of the best-selling Monet's Table, Frida's Fiestas is a personal account in words and pictures of many important and happy events in the life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.
Assembled by her stepdaughter Guadalupe Rivera Marin, it is a scrapbook of recipes for more than 100 dishes that Frida served to family and friends with her characteristic enthusiasm for all the pleasures of life.
When she was a teenager in the 1940s, Guadalupe Rivera Marin went to live with her father and stepmother in Coyoacán, in Mexico City, in a house that would become known for its vivid blue color, for its famous occupants and for the parties they would throw. Her father, of course, was the muralist Diego Rivera, one of the most important Mexican artists of all time, and his wife was painter Frida Kahlo, who achieved worldwide fame mostly after her premature death at age 47.
Full-color photographs. A book to be cherished.
