Frida Kahlo's diary, like her art, is painted in breathtakingly vivid colours.
It covers her tumultuous last decade and encompasses love letters, political musings on Communism, and resplendent paintings.
Covering the years 1944-45, the 170-page journal contains Frida's thoughts, poems, and dreams, and reflects her stormy relationship with her husband, Diego Rivera, Mexico's famous artist. The seventy watercolour illustrations in the journal - some lively sketches, several elegant self-portraits, others complete paintings - offer insights into her creative process, and show her frequently using the journal to work out pictorial ideas for her canvases. The text entries, written in Frida's round, full script in brightly coloured inks, add an almost decorative quality, making the journal as captivating to look at as it is to read.
