La Casa Azul is the Intimate Universe of Frida Kahlo. In this beautiful residence, the artist lived most of her life; initially with her family and years later, with Diego Rivera. Likewise, interesting Mexican and foreign visitors stayed in this place, attracted by the captivating couple of artists.

During her artistic career, Kahlo explored her identity by frequently depicting her ancestry as binary opposites: the colonial European side and the indigenous Mexican side.
Frida wanted to leave her home as a museum, to be enjoyed by her beloved Mexico. For this reason, after her death, Diego organized here, the Frida Kahlo Museum.

The museography was the task of the museographer, teacher and great poet Carlos Pellicer, a very close friend of the couple. The Museum’s administration was entrusted to the Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo Museum Trust at the Bank of Mexico, established by Rivera himself in 1957.

Since the Museum’s inauguration in July 1958, the Blue House exhibits the ambience that inspired Frida for her creation, as well as her personal belongings. Along with paintings by both artists, are displayed remarkable popular art pieces, pre-Columbian sculptures, photographs, documents, books and furniture. The beautiful garden is an essential part of the Blue House and it gives you access the exhibition of Frida’s Dresses.

Fantastic design! Congrats!

Thanks a lot, we tried to put as many details we think could make the house recognizable and add two other views.
