Episode #13: Diego and Frida, Part 2 (Season 1, Episode 13)

ArtCurious Podcast

Glamour. Curiosity. Excitement. A love story for the ages. Such are the types of descriptors that you hear when you ponder the life and love of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Truly, in the pantheon of great artistic relationships, they are one of the top couples out there. And they had the great fortune, or whatever you want to call it, of living their exciting lives in front of the camera, as well as on canvas. Google them, and all kinds of lovey-dovey images come up-- images of Diego nuzzling Frida, images of them kissing, of her embracing him around his wide middle section. But what some people neglect, or possibly even forget, is that their relationship was by no means perfect. There were great ups, of course, but the downs? Incredible. Even Diego Rivera himself was aware of this fact, later writing, quote, “If I ever loved a woman, the more I loved her, the more I wanted to hurt her. Frida was the most obvious victim of this disgusting trait.” Harsh words. But would they always be that way?                        //SUBSCRIBE and review us on Apple Podcasts HERE!   And follow us on Twitter and on Instagram for more artsy goodness: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/artcuriouspod/                                                    Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/artcuriouspod Looking for a transcription of this episode?
