Today marks the 107th anniversary of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo’s birthday. She was born in Mexico City on July 6, 1907. I’ve written many times about Frida Kahlo, visited the Museo Frida Kahlo—also known as La Casa Azul—in Mexico City, and admired Frida’s work in books, museums around the world and online. To say I am a fan of Frida Kahlo is probably an understatement. I try to visit La Casa Azul each time I visit Mexico City and explore the streets of Coyoacán, where she once walked too.
On one of my recent visits, my father-in-law took a photo of me in front of La Casa Azul, which I’ve printed and framed to have a little piece of Frida at home. If you’ve never been to the museum, you can take a virtual visit online of the Museo Frida Kahlo.
