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.
The Lily Pond, c. 1886
“This painting takes me back to summers at my grandparents summer house .. we'd canoe down the lake, portage over the sand hill and brave the spidery underside of the old bridge to get to an idyllic pond .. just like this painting (minus the dragonflies!).”
