Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo #3

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera in the garden at Casa Azul, Mexico.

"Casa Azul – or, the “Blue House” due to its brilliant cobalt walls – was the birthplace and home of Frida Kahlo, where she lived throughout her two troubled marriages to the artist Diego Rivera, until her death in 1954. Kahlo painted from its light-filled studio through periods of pain and illness, the result of injuries she sustained in a bus accident at the age of 18. Like many colonial Mexican houses of the period, it’s built around a central courtyard, filled with cacti, fruit trees and indigenous plants, and the couple’s collection of Mexican folk art and archeological artefacts. The wildlife found its way into her work, particularly in her symbolic use of plant and animal imagery."
