Learn more about this famous couple's ups and downs through the collection of the Diego Rivera House-Studio Museum.
In 1937, they invited Leon Trotsky to stay with them in the Blue House in Coyoacán. Frida and Trotsky embarked upon a secret love affair, which hurt Rivera deeply, given his admiration for the communist leader. In 1938, Rivera and Kahlo struck up a close friendship with André Bretón, author of the Surrealist Manifesto, and his wife, the painter Jacqueline Lamba. The couple moved into the house-studio that Frida had originally occupied in San Ángel.
