Diego Riviera (1886- 1957) ~ Frida Kahlo (1907- 1954)
Amor por Siempre
With a great admiration for Frida Kahlo tonight i joined a lecture about the mythical art couple Frida Kahlo & Diego Riviera by Karin Haanappel. About their turbulent life, their unconventional marriage at that time, their great devotion for each other and their shared interest for politics. But most important they shared a great passion for art. The only significant difference; Diego Riviera painted for the people. He was a great painter and muralist. While Frida Kahlo painted her life story. The art world called her a great surrealist. From which Frida was offended cause she said the only things she painted was her own reality. In spite of her life of suffering Frida lived her life to the fullest. She was not only the wife of Diego Riviera,with her extraordinary exotic presence and unique art expression she became one of the greatest artist in art history. She became an icon. Together they created their own New Mexican Art; a fusion of western avant garde, Mexican history and pre-Colombian era. As you know we at Milagros
