A rare square format paperback exhibition catalogue of the Lola Alvarez Bravo Travelling Exhibition, of black and white photos by Lola Alvarez Bravo of the famous Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, published by the Society of Friends of the Mexican Culture, Dallas Texas.

It contains a page of acknowledgements, and an introduction and interview by Salomon Grimberg, Curator of the Exhibition (which started in Dallas, and went to Washington D. C. and Albuquerque, New Mexico), followed by the catalogue of black and white photos.

Fifty black and white posed photographs of Mexico's most famous woman painter dressed in her famous Tejuana costume, in her home, in her studio, in her wheelchair, in her garden, with her dog, some paintings, etc., including a haunting shot of her cluttered studio following her death, dated 1954.

"Khalo's absence seems more palpable than the objects present. This is most evident in the photograph taken of the studio immediately following Kahlo's death. The wheelchair by the easel is empty, and Kahlo's self-portrait in which she is letting go of her crutches, remains unfinished," as Grimberg puts it in his Introduction.

Fifty intimate photographs in all, taken by another Mexican woman artist of considerable stature, some of quite startling tragic Mexican Romantic beauty, in the living tradition of the great 19th century Romantic-Symbolist photographer Julia Margaret Cameron, perhaps.
