"Frida & Diego: Art, Love, Life"

New from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt: Frida & Diego: Art, Love, Life by Catherine Reef.

About the book, from the publisher:

Nontraditional, controversial, rebellious, and politically volatile, the Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera are remembered for their provocative paintings as well as for their deep love for each other. Their marriage was one of the most tumultuous and infamous in history—filled with passion, pain, betrayal, revolution, and, above all, art that helped define the twentieth century.

Catherine Reef's inspiring and insightful dual biography features numerous archival photos and full-color reproductions of both artists' work.
