Our visit with our granddaughters also included a trip to Atlanta to see extended family. While in Atlanta, we were able to go to the Diego Rivera & Frida Kahlo exhibit
at Atlanta's High Museum of Art .
It was a wonderful exhibition that we were all able to enjoy. Our youngest granddaughter, Gracie, recently studied about Frida Kahlo in art class.
I was amazed at how large the show was.
It covered the monumental murals of Diego Rivera as well as his paintings.
My favorites were & always have been those with his signature cala lilies.
But for me the real emphases of the show was all about Frida.
Her starkly revealing self portraits tell the story in pictures of her often tragic life & her passionate yet tumultuous relationship with her husband, Diego.
I was struck by how even her beautiful, colorful still lifes have a provocative edge to them.
Together these two iconic Mexican artists created an enormous body of work in their lifetimes & this exhibition has done a wonderful job of curating it.
We enjoyed sharing this exhibit as a family
well... you have to have a little fun too!
