This reminds us of what Frida thought when comparing her work with Surrealism: "They think that I am surrealist, but it is not true, I am not, I have never painted what I dream, I paint my own reality".
In life, Diego Rivera asked Dolores Olmedo that once he and Frida died, to turn the house into a museum, leaving everything open to the public except for a bathroom, which could be opened fifteen years after his death. The years passed and when they opened the space they discovered documents, photos, dresses and books.
