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.
“I love the history depicted in this painting. The resolute faces of the burghers show such strength. West conveys so clearly the queen's compassion while pleading to the guards. I also love the richness of the queen's gown and the detailed armor on the guard. ”
