Diego and Frida: Larger than Life Legends
Wednesday, January 16
7 – 8:30 pm
Public $12 | Members $10 | Students $8
Carmen Melián, Sotheby’s Latin American art specialist, will talk about the art and lives of Diego and Frida. In the artistic world it is rare to have couples with equal careers. When they married, Diego was one of the most famous artists in the world. It took a strong talented woman to keep working and producing something original in his shadow. We will follow their careers, both personally and on the art market front, peeking into the creativity behind the romantic legend.
Carmen Melián served as Sotheby’s Latin American Department Head from 2005 to 2011 and is currently a Senior Specialist.
Presented in partnership with Sotheby’s Canada
