Artists & Love
From Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz to Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, ARTISTS & LOVE delves into the tumultuous romantic and creative partnerships that shaped some of the towering figures of modern art. Over the course of two seasons, directors Stéphanie Colaux and Delphine Deloget chronicle a new romantic encounter between two artists, tracing the profound effects on their personal and artistic trajectories. While some of the romances lead to new periods of creative flourishing and collaboration, others result in standstill and heartbreak.
Extensive use of period-specific film footage, paintings, archival photographs and animation immerse viewers in the visual world of the artists. While each episode ARTISTS & LOVE comes to its own conclusion, they all attempt to answer the same questions: Is love compatible with creation? Can artists reveal themselves through romantic passion? Does love bring a renewed energy to art?
