A day in the life of Frida Kahlo

museum

Built in 1904, Casa Azul is the place where Frida Kahlo was born, where she lived, and where she died as Latin America's best-known painter.

The vibrant colours and popular pre-Hispanic decorations of this splendid blue house bear witness to the admiration Frida Kahlo and her husband, painter Diego Rivera, had for the villages and culture of Mexico.

A museum since 1958, four years after Frida Kahlo's death, the place has retained its intimate atmosphere, thanks to Carlos Pellicer, poet and friend of the couple, who established the museum and preserved it in its natural state: the brushes, easel, books, and even letters are all there.

Strolling through every corner of this house full of photographs, personal objects, and Mexican artefacts is a way to immerse yourself in the inspirations and daily life of this couple, legends of 20th-century art history.
