Yesterday we went to the Frida Kahlo’s house or “the Blue House”. There we learned all about Frida and her life. I was already aware of Frida Kahlo’s chronic disabilities from having polio as a child and getting into a trolley accident when she was 18, but seeing all the casts and braces Frida had to use to prevent her pain was very eye opening. As someone who loves to paint, it was so amazing being able to be in the house of one of the most iconic painters. Frida created beautiful masterpieces but most people are unaware that these beautiful paintings were created out of her chronic pain and desperation to have a child.
