Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo were an explosive couple. He carried a pistol. She carried a flask. He romanticized Detroit. She rejected it. But what they shared was a belief in communism, a thirst for tequila and a passion for each other. Discover how they left their mark on Detroit.
Saint Jerome in His Study, c. 1435
“Although I have many, one of my favorites is Saint Jerome in his study (and not just because he is the patron saint of libraries). I am always struck by how this tiny painting has such a large visual impact with its vivid jewel-toned colors and detailed imagery. The fun thing about this painting is learning what the objects surrounding Saint Jerome symbolize. It’s like trying to solve a puzzle. ”
