the pine trees in black and white

Marika Rivera, daughter of painter Diego Rivera and artist Marie Marevna. I love how beautifully old-world Italian she looked, though in actuality she was Mexican and Russian.
She's perhaps best known for her role in Fellini's Casanova. 
(with her husband)
A painting by Marika's mother, seen at left holding Marika as a child.
Another fascinating branch of the Diego-Frida "family" tree of lovers and children.
