本書有別於坊間撰寫研究Frida Kahlo作品的書籍，從墨西哥現代主義的角度來研究她與丈夫Diego Rivera的作品。
壁畫運動與超現實主義是他們兩位的風格，也是奉獻其藝術生命的重要里程碑，作者將卡蘿在Fort Lauderdale博物館珍藏的卅幅作品，以及吉爾曼基金會收藏Diego Rivera的畫作，當然包括最出名的卡蘿自畫像，Diego on My Mind，以及里維拉自畫像。
這對在墨西哥藝術史影響甚鉅的夫妻，是最佳的藝術夥伴，卻也彼此願對鳩葛一聲。Frida Kahlo弗瑞達卡蘿，六歲的小兒麻痺症讓她左腳從此彎曲，十八歲瀕臨死亡的車禍撿回一條命，卻讓她失去生育功能，失去腿，畢生飽受車禍遺留的疼痛；生理痛苦之外，愛上墨西哥壁畫復興運動者Diego Rivera，拈花惹草的天性帶給卡蘿終生折磨──這些苦痛，讓卡蘿揮灑在畫布上，她的每一幅作品就是她人生真實寫照，看來格外逼真寫實。
A new survey of the masterworks of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, set against the backdrop of Mexican Modernism. Few artists have captured the public s imagination with the force of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Icons respectively of surrealism and the Mural Movement, their work reflected their immersion in indigenous Mexican culture while looking ahead to progressive ideals and wielding a defining influence on Mexican Modernism. Brought together for a unique exhibition at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, this catalog includes more than thirty masterpieces by Kahlo and Rivera from the renowned Gelman Foundation Collection in Mexico City, among them such iconic works as Kahlo s Autorretrato con Monos (Self-Portrait with Monkeys) and Diego en Mi Pensamiento (Diego on My Mind), and Rivera s Autorretrato (Self-Portrait) and Retrato de Natasha Gelman (Portrait of Natasha Gelman). Set in the broader context of the Mexican modernist movement, Kahlo s and Rivera s pieces are accompanied by works by such other masters as José Clemente Orozco, Rufino Tamayo, and Leonora Carrington. This book is being published to coincide with the exhibition Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection and Mexican Modernism from the Stanley and Pearl Goodman Collection, at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale.
