This is The Blue House where Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera lived, now called Museo Frida Kahlo is where personal items reveal the intimate world of the Mexican artist most recognised worldwide.
What I like about old Mexican houses, is the garden in the middle of the house, in a lot of villages in Mexico the houses are this shape, the light and interior mixing with the exterior, is wonderful.
Just like Frida Kahlo's house.
Inside of the house.
The house itself speaks of the everyday life of Frida. For example, the kitchen, which is typical of Mexican old buildings, with their clay pots hanging on the wall are testament to the variety of dishes that were prepared in the Blue House, both Diego and Frida loved to entertain his guests with dishes of Mexican, Hispanic, colonial and popular.
Frida Kahlo Studio
On her bed is a painted plaster corset she was forced to wear to support her damaged spine, and under the canopy is a mirror facing down which she used to paint her many self-portraits.
The head of the bed contains a butterflies collection a gift from Japanese artist Isamu Naguchi.
I really enjoyed the museum, isn't fancy or pretentious, the fact it was her home makes the museum really personal and enjoyable.
I hope you enjoy this post and if you want to see more photos you can check the album in my facebook page.
