Mod­ern Cou­ples Bar­bican Art Gallery, EC2, to 27 Jan

The Guardian - The Guide - - Art -

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, Vanessa Bell and Dun­can Grant, Sal­vador Dalí and Fed­erico Gar­cía Lorca: mod­ern art in the early 20th cen­tury was in­tensely ro­man­tic. Artists were not just try­ing to have ca­reers but wanted to change the world. That shared vi­sion made for ex­cit­ing, ex­per­i­men­tal lives. This show fea­tures Dora Maar’s af­fair with Pi­casso (pic­tured) as well as Dalí’s re­la­tion­ship with the poet Lorca.
