I went to see the Frida & Diego exhibit at the AGO for a second time last week. Frida & Diego Passion, Politics and Painting is an excellent exhibit pairing the artist couple.
Diego Rivera was an academically trained and prolific artist. Frida Kahlo was self taught and completed less than 200 works in her lifetime. Frida had a difficult childhood as she contracted polio and later suffered life long health problems after a near death accident. She painted many self portraits and much of her work depicted her suffering and spiritual anguish.
The displays set up outside the exhibit were fun and much needed to lift the mood.
