Book: Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos by Monica Brown / Frida Kahlo y sus animalitos por Monica Brown

Art: Self-Portrait with Monkeys by Frida Kahlo / Autorretrato con monos por Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos chronicles Frida’s life –from her childhood to her rise as one of the world’s more influential painters –capturing the beauty and strength of Frida’s creative spirit, which carried her through tragedy and triumph, and the animals that inspired her along the way. Brown’s innovative theme –playfully considering how Frida embodied characteristics of each of her beloved pets (two monkeys, a parrot, three dogs, two turkeys, and eagle, a black cat, and a fawn) –coupled with Parra’s bold-colored art, reminiscent of Frida’s palette, make this biography a warm and wonder-filled offering for Frida Kahlo fans old and new. -Brown, Monica. Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos. NorthSouth Books, 2019.

All art supplies are provided by the Norton Museum of Art and can be collected at the Main Library.
