but he also painted, mainly watercolor".

Eros es dual, así como Frida

"In the end, she lived among passions, 
but always true to herself; she said she loved Diego just like he was, 
because if she had wished to change him, 
then she would have loved another Diego..."

Amor a lo mexicano

“In fact, in this house (on Aguayo street) 
was where she painted a ribbon held by two sparrows that reads: 
“’the spongers’ inn’, because this is where everyone came to eat… 
Frida loved sopecitos”.
