By Gérard de Cortanze

Como bien cube Gérard de Cortanze en l. a. introducción del libro: «En realidad, Frida Kahlo es una de las artistas más enigmáticas que existen, una de las más íntimas, como abrasada por sus opciones políticas, su dolor físico, su amor por Diego. Esto es lo que interesa de su pintura. Pero más allá de lo que Carlos Fuentes llama sus «treinta y nueve años de sufrimiento», tenemos a una mujer que crea un universo pictórico vigoroso y colorido, cuyo grito adopta una forma emocional y obvious. Es ese viaje hacia un mundo impresionante, muy specific, muy vivo, único en los angeles historia de l. a. pintura, lo que he tratado de describir en este libro, que no es ni un ensayo ni una biografía en el sentido clásico de los angeles palabra, sino más bien un recorrido por los meandros de una obra y una vida, que descubrimos detrás de una falsificación en los angeles que el creador siempre nos abre su diario auténtico. En algunos bocetos y en algunas pinturas de Frida Kahlo aparece un verde a veces profundo, un amarillo desvaído, colour éste último al que ella le da una definición specific: Locura y misterio. Esa locura y ese misterio son exactamente lo que me emociona de Frida Kahlo.» Esta obra nos adentra en l. a. vida de aquella joven mexicana que en septiembre de 1925 sufre un accidente que trastornará por completo su porvenir. Bella e independiente, se casa en 1929 con Diego Rivera, el célebre pintor muralista. Esa joven period Frida Kahlo y este libro es su historia, que nos cuenta cómo una de las máximas de su vida fue no cerrar jamás los ojos a l. a. fealdad, sino, por el contrario, abrirlos para presenciar así el nacimiento de una belleza poor, para l. a. que ella inventa otra realidad. Torturada por el dolor físico, pero arrebatada por sus compromisos políticos y amores tumultuosos, con el paso de los años construyó una obra pictórica poderosa y singular. los angeles última de sus obras, Viva l. a. vida, es un canto a l. a. luz y a l. a. alegría de vivir.

18 1 The Early Years examination in Paris, he made a deep impression on the examiners. An acquaintance from Nancy, De Roche du Teilloy, was present [Bellivier 1956]. He recalled that Henri was asked to give a proof from elementary geometry. Without hesitation, he provided a correct answer, but the examiner then asked for a more elementary proof. Henri’s immediate answer to this was also correct, but it contained trigonometric arguments. The examiner now asked for a proof containing elementary geometric arguments only and was again answered at once, now to his complete satisfaction.

In the fall of 1877, Raymond moved to Paris to study law. He took a room adjacent to Henri’s in the Boulevard St. Michel. The philosophical discussions between the cousins that had been carried on at a distance now continued much more intensively. As mentioned above, graphology, the study of the relationship between character and handwriting, interested Henri. In a letter home, he expressed surprise that women, who in his experience often think in a haphazard way and without much logic, often have neat and well-ordered handwriting.

On March 28, 1879, he graduated as a mining engineer and obtained an appointment as inspector of mines at Vesoul, in eastern France. He had requested an appointment that would put him not too far from Nancy. He arrived in Vesoul on April 3, 1879, nearly 25 years old, with his main responsibility the mines of Ronchamp, about 30 kilometres from Vesoul. As a mining engineer, Poincar´e’s job was to assess mines for their production capacity and safety, including structural integrity, ventilation, and the localization and removal of inflammable gases.
