Anmerkung des Herausgebers

Captivating chronicle…

Following the devastating news that her husband Diego Riviera wanted a divorce (after several transgressions, including his affair with her sister), Frida Kahlo set off for France. While there, she hobnobbed with fellow masters like Pablo Picasso, flourished creatively, and had a whirlwind romance with Michael Petitjean. Michael’s son Mark writes this captivating chronicle of a seldom-explored area of Kahlo’s life.

Beschreibung

This intimate account offers a new, unexpected understanding of the artist’s work and of the vibrant 1930s surrealist scene.

In 1938, just as she was leaving Mexico for her first solo exhibition in New York, Frida Kahlo was devastated to learn from her husband, Diego Rivera, that he intended to divorce her. This latest blow followed a long series of betrayals, most painful of all his affair with her beloved younger sister, Cristina, in 1934. In early 1939, anxious and adrift, Kahlo traveled from the United States to France—her only trip to Europe, and the beginning of a unique period of her life when she was enjoying success on her own.

Now, for the first time, this previously overlooked part of her story is brought to light in exquisite detail. Marc Petitjean takes the reader to Paris, where Kahlo spends her days alongside luminaries such as Pablo Picasso, André Breton, Dora Maar, and Marcel Duchamp.

Using Kahlo’s whirlwind romance with the author’s father, Michel Petitjean, as a jumping-off point, The Heart: Frida Kahlo in Paris provides a striking portrait of the artist and an inside look at the history of one of her most powerful, enigmatic paintings.

  • (1/5)
    The narrator's mispronuncment of Tijuana as "Tia-juana" is unforgivable and ruined what up to that point had been an interesting account.
  • (4/5)
    Very interesting account of a unique period in Frida Kahlo’s life.
  • (5/5)
    I cannot better the account of this book as published by Scribd. Suffice to say it takes the reader into a world where war was brewing as a backdrop to the decadent life of the French literati class. Frida Kahlo of course is the object of fascination for all of us who wonder about womanhood and what it means. This book must have been a painstaking labor of love for the author seeking to understand his own father. Finally, for some reason I did not find the voice reading the book to me to be like a computer, as suggested in a couple of other comments. The diction was very clear meaning I could listen to the book in the middle of the night, in the dark and without having to put on my hearing aide. I’ve given this book 5 stars

    I feel like this book is narrated by my satnav.
  • (5/5)
    A great narrative my first book on Frieda Kahlil am hungry to know more after listening to this remarkable work great details on the artist stay in Paris and about surrealism to some extent fatalistic rendition by the narrator
  • (3/5)
    The book was an interesting addition to our knowledge of Frida Kahlo’s incredible life. I would have rated it higher if the narrator hadn’t assaulted my ears with dreadful mangling of Mexican place names. I realize they can be difficult to pronounce but someone should have edited the narration.
