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.
Flowers in a Glass Vase, 1704
“I find this painting amazing in its detail and composition; every time I view it, I find something I haven't noticed before. And the colors are rich and the flowers are incredibly vibrant! The fact that it was painted by a woman at a time when men so completely dominated the art world only adds to this painting's uniqueness. ”
