Room three is absolutely breathtaking. It’s full of Kahlo’s family photos, her parents, her sisters, and of course her love Diego Rivera. There are also some of Frida’s sketches and a paper mache set that she made.
Room four is dedicated to her amor eterno Diego Rivera: his sketches, paintings and even blueprint and photographs of the museum/home he as building “Anahuacalli.“
Room five is dedicated to Frida’s “Retablos.” From what I have read, Frida and Diego had hundreds of Retablo’s displayed throughout their home. A retablo is a painting that includes three basic elements:
- A scene depicting a tragedy or someone with a grave injury/illness,
- A Saint or Martyr that intervened and made a Milagro (Miracle),
- An inscription describing the tragic event and giving thanks for the Divine intervention.
