The Dali Museum’s 2017 retrospective of works by painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) was a huge hit, as interest in the eccentric, intense Mexican artist has increased to a fever pitch in recent years.

Now the museum is turning its focus to Kahlo’s 25-year relationship with muralist Diego Rivera (1886-1957); consisting of 60 historical photographs, Diego & Frida: A Visual History will open Sept. 5 in the Raymond James Community Room.

The exhibit is on loan from The Consulate of Mexico in Orlando, and made possible by the Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo in Mexico City.

According to an article published on riseart.com, “The relationship between Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera is not your typical love story … They had messy fights, multiple extra-marital affairs and even divorced in 1939 only to remarry a year later. The duo painted each other for 25 years.”

Diego & Frida: A Visual History will run through Jan. 3. Dali website.
