Frida Kahlo’s biographer, Hayden Herrera, takes us on a virtual tour of La Casa Azul—Frida’s childhood home where she was born and passed away in 1954.
“People are present in the things they choose to have around them during their life,” Herrera says in the video.
Frida lived the majority of her life in La Casa Azul, which was built by Frida’s father Carl Wilhelm Kahlo in Coyoacan—a district in the southern part of Mexico City.
Today, La Casa Azul continues to preserve many of Frida’s possessions as they originally were. This video includes snapshots of her paint brushes, paintings, and other objects that she treasured.
Although, we can’t travel during this quarantine season, it is still marvelous to see Frida’s home so carefully retained in its original condition.
One day, like many of you, I hope I can visit the beautiful Casa Azul. But for now, this video and reading her biography will have to do.
