A complete catalog of the Forty Fridas portfolio by artist Ellen Heck, this full-color, 136-page book includes an essay by the artist, the complete series of prints, and a section of trial and process proofs. Forty Fridas is a series of woodcut and drypoint prints depicting women and girls dressed up and posing as painter and icon, Frida Kahlo. This project, while in some respects an intimate collection of personal portraits, touches more broadly on themes of identity, multiplicity, individuality and variation—themes apparent both in subject matter and medium.
