Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera, Art in Fusion - Musée de l'Orangerie, Paris

There were hordes of visitors, at the entrance and once inside, (Do book tickets online! That will reduce your queuing to 30 minutes.) as opposed to the number of exhibits, which was relatively meager. 

Diego Rivera was lavishly over-represented, and while he may be a great artist, I for one am not exactly transported by his work.

Yet Kahlo's work generously made up for everything else! 
Her canvases are literally mesmerizing, expressing suffering like nothing else I know of.
Spellbinding.
