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.
A Woman, 1532/1534
“This small portrait caught my eye during my first visit to the DIA, many years ago. The depth of the blue in the background, enhanced by the whiteness of the coif and shawl, expresses an intensity and resolve contrasting with the homeliness of the face. It slowly dawned on me that the woman could be an image of Detroit, a city that has forever grabbed my heart even if, at first glance, it lacks conventional beauty.”
