I think I need to spend more time researching Frida Kahlo’s friends. Trust me: there’s something very difficult about the dichotomy between “girl, do what makes you happy,” and “GIRL, CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THIS GUY?!”
I mean, Diego Rivera isn’t exactly known around art history as a “cool dude.” Or a “nice guy.” Or “so hot it’s worth it.”
Like, at all.
But maybe that’s just what helped Frida get close with her girlfriends. I’m just going to assume that Frida and singer Chavela Vargas are laughing at his expense…
