WHAT TO SEE AT THE FRIDA KAHLO MUSEUM
Once you have purchased tickets to the Frida Kahlo Museum you will be able to enter this fabulous place and enjoy the artist’s great masterpieces.
Remember that there are some of Frida’s works that you absolutely cannot miss before you leave, in fact there are at least two masterpieces and one room that you cannot miss.
- Frida y la cesarea
A work that depicts one of Frida’s most heartfelt themes: motherhood.
She created this work after her first miscarriage and, as painting for Frida was a way of exorcising her fears, she managed to transform pain into art.
- Viva la vida
The last painting made by Frida Kahlo is a hymn to life that the artist finished eight days before her death at Casa Azul.
- Frida’s Bedroom
In the artist’s room is the bed with the ceiling mirror, which her mother had installed so that Frida could paint after the terrible accident in 1925. Art was her salvation and allowed her to process and communicate her pain to the world until the end.
