TASCHEN Books: Publisher of books on art, architecture, design and photography

TASCHEN, founded in a small comic-book shop in 1980, is an international art publisher specializing in books on art, architecture, design, fashion, film, travel, and the odd sexy book thrown in for good measure. Since the TASCHEN adventure began more than 30 years ago, the goal has always been to make the greatest, and most beautiful, books in the world.

Taschen Highlights

The complete paintings of Frida Kahlo in an XXL edition

Frida Kahlo transcended art history like no woman artist before her. She was a key figure of Mexican revolutionary modern art and a pioneer of the politics of gender, sexuality, and feminism. We access the intimacy of Frida’s affections and passions through a selection of drawings, pages from her personal diary, letters, and an extensive illustrated biography featuring photos of Frida, Diego, and the Casa Azul, Frida’s home and the center of her universe.

This large-format XXL monograph allows readers to admire Frida Kahlo’s paintings like never before, including unprecedented detail shots and famous photographs. It presents pieces in private collections and reproduces works that were previously lost or have not been exhibited for more than 80 years, forming the most extensive study of Kahlo’s work and life to date.
