The Musée de l'Orangerie is presenting an exhibition devoted to the legendary couple Diego Rivera (1886-1957) and Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). The originality of this exhibition lies in the fact that their works will be presented together, as if to confirm the impossibility of their divorce, finalised in 1938, but reconsidered after just one year apart.

It also gives us a better view of their respective artistic worlds, so different and yet so complementary, through the deep-rooted attachment they shared for their country: a cycle of life and death, revolution and religion, realism and mysticism, workers and peasants.
