Frida and Diego
Last Friday I went to the Heard Museum to see the new exhibit Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. I'm going to make a point to go back sometime this summer after the winter visitors have gone because it was extremely crowded and I think I missed a lot because of that. I patiently waited for a break in the crowds to snap this photo of some of Frida's clothes. I heard a guide say that she wore a lot of loose and boxy tops to hide the cast she had to wear under her clothes because of her back injury.
They had quite a few original works of art from both Frida and Diego. I liked this one titled "Diego on my Mind" from 1943.
And then I saw this photograph of Frida working on that same (or a similar) painting with Diego looking on.
Among the works of Diego Rivera was this painting that almost everyone will recognize. It has been reprinted numerous times.
I'll go back later this summer and spend more time looking at all the pieces on display.
