Frida Kahlo de Rivera (Diego Rivera‘s wife) was a Mexican painter who is best known for her self-portraits. Kahlo’s life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home known as the Blue House. Mexican culture and Amerindian cultural tradition are important in her work, which has been sometimes characterized as naïve, folk or surrealist art. But she was really representing reality more than her dreams. “I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best.” Kahlo and Rivera lived together in La Casa Azul in Mexico between 1929 and 1954. Diego Rivera donated it upon his death in 1957, three years after that of Kahlo. Now it is a museum containing artifacts of her life.

The New York Botanical Garden presents a wonderful exhibition, showing the deep love that Frida Kahlo had for natural life. Go and see the great collection they have! There are more than 12 original paintings and the re-creation of La Casa Azul‘s famous garden.
