Mrs. Diego Rivera, the dabbler

From Maria Popover’s BrainPickings, I found this gem of a headline from a 1933 newspaper:


I’m not sure the writer could be more patronizing if he tried. Love the word “dabble.”

And in more recent Frida Kahlo news, the Guardian reports that you can have the famous painter herself cook you an enchilada in a Mexico City market stall.  Ok, perhaps not the actual Frida Kahlo, who (1) is long dead, and (2) was not a cook. Now if you wanted someone to criticize an ugly, cheating husband, she would have been your woman!
