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.
“This painting speaks to my inner self: a horse-obsessed 8 year old girl. The jockey wearing the red coat and hat rides his horse at a relaxed walk. To the right of him is a tiny red dot. It’s a jockey in the distance riding at a gallop; the legs of his steed are fully extended. Degas captured what I have always loved about horses—the way they move. ”
