"Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in Detroit"
Last week, I spent the day at The Detroit Institute of Art. The show "Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in Detroit" is on exhibit and well worth the visit.
I enjoyed seeing the work of both artists. Seeing work in person is candy to my eyes. One piece resonated more than the rest, a pencil study for her painting Henry Ford Hospital (the flying bed). Looking at the piece, so emotional, I cried. Many other works were incredible as well. I loved the intimacy of her work, the scale too.
Frida is one of the women in my series, the Book of Ours created in 2008.
