Query From Carolyn J. Eichner 30 Sept 1998
I have a student working on an undergraduate honors thesis on Frida Kahlo.
a French historian, my knowledge in this area is quite limited. Can anyone suggest work specifically addressing issues of Kahlo and gender, and/or more
generally relevant work regarding early-mid 20th century female artists and questions of gender. I appreciate the guidance.
