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.
