The fact that Kahlo and Rivera were famously in love and married (twice) doesn’t mean they were actually faithful to one another. Scattered throughout the exhibit is subtle evidence of their other lovers, like a nude lithograph of Olmedo by Diego or a group of photos of Kahlo by Nickolas Muray, who courted her for years.
