Even though they were divorced and then remarried, carried on numerous known affairs while together, the following quotes let us in on their undying love for one another.

DIEGO RIVERA ABOUT FRIDA KAHLO:

- In describing his first meeting with Frida:

“I did not know it then, but Frida had already become the most important fact in my life. And would continue to be up to the moment she died, 27 years later.”

- In describing the paintings that Frida did while they were in Detroit following her miscarriage:

“Never before had a woman put such agonizing poetry on canvas as Frida did at this time in Detroit.”

“If I ever loved a woman, the more I loved her, the more I wanted to hurt her. Frida was only the most obvious victim of this disgusting trait.”

“For me, the most thrilling event of 1953 was Frida’s one man show in Mexico City during the month of April. Anyone who attended it could not but marvel at her great talent.”

“Through her paintings, she breaks all the taboos of the woman's body and of female sexuality.”

- Regarding Frida’s death:

“July 13, 1954 was the most tragic day of my life. I had lost my beloved Frida forever…To late now I realized that the most wonderful part of my life had been my love for Frida.”

FRIDA KAHLO ABOUT DIEGO RIVERA:

“Every moment he is my child, my newborn babe, every little while, every day, my own self.”

“The most interesting things about the so-called lies of Diego is that, sooner or later, the ones involved in the imaginary tale get angry, not because of the lies, but because of the truth contained in the lies, which always comes forth.”

“Being the wife of Diego is the most marvelous thing in the world…I let him play matrimony with other women. Diego is not anybody’s husband and never will be, but he is a great comrade.”

“His capacity for work breaks clocks and calendars.”

- In a letter to a close friend:

“You too know that all my eyes see, all I touch with myself, from any distance, is Diego.”
