Frida and Diego: The Lives and Times of Kahlo and Rivera   

Unibrow, Flaming Communists, Rockefeller mural, Horrific accident, Leon Trotsky and 1910 Mexican Revolution—Kahlo and Rivera lived during and made exciting history. As artists, they shaped our understanding of Mexican native cultures, while, as activists, they interfaced with many leading historical figures. This course will examine their lives, their loves (which were many!), their political ideologies, and their love for Mexico. Our emphasis will be on historical aspects more than on their art, although we will use their art to propel and illuminate the course presentations.
