Rebecca Wright reviews the exhibition Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera - Masterpieces from The Geldman Collection at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester on view through October 8, 2011.
Wright notes that "The ongoing debate about the critical importance of Rivera versus Kahlo has been heated, fought on many fronts, over a long period of time. It is an argument as passionate as one can only imagine the fiery couple had themselves during their tempestuous marriage... This exhibition seeks to intercede as referee in order to level the playing field and stop the incessant bickering over which of the pair has greater historical relevance. It seeks once again to see the pair in unison as a prolific art-making couple."
