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.

Paula and Otto, a story of tormented love and artistic creation overshadowed by death. She was all about portraits, faces, and the intensity of children’s stares. He was all about nature and the sweet subtlety of landscapes. Paula, a liberated, intuitive and visionary woman; Otto, a melancholy yet generous man. In 1900s Germany, Otto Modersohn helped his beloved become one of the greatest artists of modern painting.
