Rare And Precious Footage Of Frida Kahlo And Diego Rivera At Their Blue House In Mexico City

The longtime love relationship between the artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera was known to be very stormy. But, there were moments that were very tender and filled with emotion which is what kept them together. In Kahlo ‘s diary, she said how much she loved him and would not do anything to hurt him. She often spoke of his love for creating art, loved food, and even loved sleeping. She never wanted to see him sad and said if she had good health, she would give it all to him.

This footage was taken by Frida’s friend and confidant, Hungarian photographer Nickolas Muray.  He is an acclaimed photographer and pioneer of color photos. Kahlo ‘s on and off relationship with Muray lasted for 10 years. He was the most important person in her life, outside of Diego.
