Now available again, this bestselling book reveals the story of two creative geniuses, their important contributions to twentieth-century art, and their tumultuous romance.
This captivating book delves into the forces that shaped Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera’s lives and art, and made them important painters in their own right. Elegant reproductions of their best-known works and historical photographs illustrate the thoughtful text, which explores the political, social, and cultural upheaval that was at the center of their relationship. What emerges is a portrait of the artists, the tension between their love for each other and their commitment to their work, and the indelible legacy of paintings, murals, and words they left behind.
