Take a virtual whirl through Frida Kahlo’s home in Mexico

Written by Adam Bryce

Museo Frida Kahlo, home of the late Mexican painter (with those great eyebrows), opens their virtual doors to the public offering a rare chance to explore the artist’s villa known as Casa Azul (Blue House).

The virtual exhibition, titled ‘Appearances Can Be Deceiving’ allows us to pour over 300 pieces of Kahlo’s belongings in the home where she spent the majority of her life. The villa includes original furniture as well as personal possessions including bold-coloured skirts, embroidered blouses and many an intriuging trinket.

Also on show, are some of Kalho’s most iconic works — Viva la Vida (Long Live Life), Frida and Cesarean Operation and Portrait of My Father. Go exploring and you’ll spot the artist’s prosthetic leg in her bedroom, wheelchair in her paint studio and, in the kitchen, a bright yellow table which marks the spot where Kahlo and once-love-interest and revolutionary communist, Leon Trotsky, spent much time together.
