Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera’s relationship was not only famous because they were. Their entwined sentimental life was constantly riddled by supposed affairs, rumored separations and health problems. But one thing was for sure, they were passionately in love with each other. This rare footage of the couple was taken by photographer Nikolas Muray in their (mostly) permanent home in Mexico City’s neighborhood of Coyoacan: ‘La Casa Azul.’ “No one will ever know how much I love Diego. I don't want anything to hurt him, to bother him and take the energy he needs to live; live however he wants to," begins the narrator, reading verses Kahlo wrote for his beloved Diego.

Frida y Diego en la Casa Azul

Nadie sabrá jamás cómo quiero a Diego. No quiero que nada lo hiera, que nada lo moleste y le quite energía que él necesita para vivir, vivir como a él le dé la gana, Pintar, ver amar, comer, dormir, sentirse solo, sentirse acompañado; pero nunca quisiera que estuviera triste. Si yo tuviera salud quisiera dársela toda, si yo tuviera juventud toda la podría tomar, No soy solamente la madre, soy el embrión. el germen, la primera célula que- en potencia- lo engendró. Soy él desde las más primitivas y más antiguas células, que con el tiempo se volvieron él. Cada momento él es mi niño, mi niño nacido, cada ratito, diario, de mí misma.Frida Kahlo
