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 20th century. Catherine Reef's dual biography features numerous archival photos and full-color reproductions of both artists' work.
