Diego Rivera and Women

BBC Radio 4 - In Our Time, Frida Kahlo

Patience Schell, Chair in Hispanic Studies at the University of Abderdeen on Diego Rivera:

"He was a massive man.

He was big, he had a big belly, and he had bulging eyes and even he admitted that he looked a bit like a toad.

Now he might not seem like someone who would be appealing to women but in fact he was. By the time he and Frida got married he had already had many affairs. He was a total womanizer throughout his life and he had a habit of leaving the women who bore him children.

He'd done that three times by the time he and Frida got married.

He'd spent a decade in Europe, mostly Paris, as part of the art scene, making friends with and then falling out with Picasso"
