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.

Lucy Schwob was a writer, poet and photographer. She also went by the name of Claude Cahun, a multifaceted activist and artist whose background defied traditional labels. Suzanne Malherbe was an illustrator, graphic designer and photographer, who went by the name of Marcel Moore. Two women with exceptional personalities: resistant, gay, surrealist. Lucy Schwob and Suzanne Malherbe’s story was one of an ardent love between two women with heroic destinies, united through life and death.
