Public Tickets for Diego and Frida: On Sale Now

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.

John Singer Sargent

“Sargent's portraits are often very formal. This painting is almost sketch-like. It has lots of movement. It's like a snapshot of a moment. ”
