Frida Kahlo. Viva la vida
In Frida Kahlo. Viva la vida, the journalist Aroa Moreno focuses on the most well-known twentieth-century Mexican artist. This is the story of how a brave woman, who was ahead of her time, suffered, overcame and lived intensely, and was also capable of transforming her perpetual pain and illness into art. Frida Kahlo’s strength and character are an example of what the struggle for life means. This, together with her artwork, has made her an iconic artist throughout the Spanish-speaking world.
The personalities in the Grandes personajes collection stand out for their quality as artists and human beings. They all live in the memory of Spanish-speakers but their repetition has also reached across the borders of their countries. Each biography is about the life and works of one of the personalities. The books include photographs, a footnote Spanish glossary, and another glossary in several languages at the end of the book. In addition, all of the texts are accompanied with a variety of activities and a CD in which the text is read out.
