ART 277 - Topic: Frida Kahlo Diego Rivera in Context (1)

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: Addresses the popularity of Frida Kahlo in popular culture today as well as the turbulent context in which Kahlo and Diego Rivera lived. Most people are familiar with some of the work and life of Frida Kahlo; however, she lived in a turbulent political time with her husband, Rivera, as well as David Alfaro Siqueiros, and José Clemente Orozco. She stands out as a woman artist struggling to make her way in a rapidly changing artistic world in the twentieth century, whose work will command higher prices than any other woman artist today. [AH]
