ART

Drawing on personal experiences, including her marriage, her miscarriages, and her numerous operations, Kahlo’s works often are characterized by their stark portrayals of pain. Of her 143 paintings, 55 are self-portraits which often incorporate symbolic portrayals of physical and psychological wounds. She insisted, ‘I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.’

CLOTHES

No matter whether she was in Paris, New York or Coyoacán, she clothed herself elaborately in the Tehuana costumes of Indian maidens.

LA CASA AZUL

“The [blue] house was built in 1904 by Frida’s father, Guillermo Kahlo, and was the Kahlo family home. Leon Trotsky stayed here as a guest of Frida and her husband Diego Rivera when he first arrived in Mexico in 1937. Diego Rivera later purchased the home, paying off the mortgage and debt that Frida’s father had accumulated during his lifetime. The Casa Azul was converted into a museum in 1958, four years after Frida’s death. It is decorated with Mexican folk art and contains Frida’s and Diego’s personal belongings from the time they lived there.”
