REVIEW

The Frida Kahlo Museum, also known as Casa Azul (Blue House) is the place where the artist was born and died. It is located in Londres 247, in Coyoacan, the house became museum in 1958, four years later after her death. It is the place where the intimate world of this world wide famous Latin American artist is kept. There are some important paintings like Viva la vida (1954), Frida y la cesarean (1931), Retrato de mi padre Wilhem Kahlo (1952) among others.

The bedroom keeps the mirror on the ceiling that Frida used to make the self-portraits while she was convalescence from the bus accident she suffered when returning from the Escuela Nacional Preparatoria.
