When we started to research our theme for the Women’s History Month event, we were moved by how many artists and friends the life and works of Frida Kahlo had reached. Therefore we decided to present the artworks to you in an exhibition showcasing the best that we have found.

Considered one of the Mexico's greatest artist, Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyocoan, Mexico City, Mexico. She grew up in the family's home where was later referred as the Blue House or Casa Azul.Life experience is a common theme in Kahlo's approximately 200 paintings, sketches and drawings. Her physical and emotional pain are depicted starkly on canvases, as is her turbulent relationship with her husband, fellow artist Diego Rivera, who she married twice. Of her 143 paintings, 55 are self-portraits.
Frida Kahlo's fame has been growing after her death. Her Blue House was opened as a museum in the year of 1958. In 1970s the interest on her work and life are renewed due to the feminist movement, since she was viewed as an icon of female creativity.
Come and join us on the preview event with a complimentary glass of wine or beer from Il Cudega, our neighbours at the Italian Deli.
