La Casa Azul, El Museo de Frida Kahlo: Diego Rivera’s Bedroom

Last week I shared some of the photos I took of the kitchen and dining room in La Casa Azul (click here to see). Today I present to you some of the photos from Diego Rivera‘s personal bedroom in La Casa Azul. Yes, although Frida and Diego were married while living in La Casa Azul, they did sleep separately.
The first thing that I noticed when I walked into Diego Rivera‘s room was the pair of signature denim overalls hanging on the wall. I was able to close my eyes and envision  him wearing them while painting one of his many famous murals. His signature overalls and hats also reminded me of the Portrait of Ignacio Sanchez, which is an oil on canvas  he completed in 1927. I felt his presence.
I carefully examined the small bedroom and spotted a miniature of Diego Rivera‘s death mask on top of the cabinet (pictured in photo #2, far right). I also noticed that there were couple of Pre-Hispanic pieces on that same cabinet, which is nothing compared to the HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of pieces he collected
Do you have a favorite painting/mural by Diego Rivera?

    My grandparents slept in the same bedroom but in separate beds once they got into their 70s. They were very happy couple. Diego Rivera´s and Frida’s life is so interesting. So much so that we will be telling stories of them forever. Glad you got to live a moment of their life.

    Love it, feels like peeking into his life. A bedroom is such a personal and private thing. Would love to visit sometime.

    Those chairs in the room are amazing! My favorite Diego Rivera is “Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in Alameda Park”, so much detail and symbolism. Thanks for a peak into his life.

    I am a huge fan of Frida and Diego. I can only imagine your feeling when you got the chance to visit his home. It’ll be a dream come true for me if I ever get to visit their native places. xx 🙂
