We were very disappointed that art works by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera held in the private Museo Delores Olmedo in Mexico City were in Paris at the time of our visit. What we did see, apart from Impressionist art works from Paris, was this extraordinary Day of the Dead exhibit. Parisian art scene had been rendered in Mexican style skeletons. Famous artists such as Modigliani, Picasso, Manet, Monet, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh and others were depicted in tableaus with great creativity and humour.
At the Frida Kahlo Museum (The Blue House) in Mexico City, we encountered this beautiful Day of the Dead installation by Mexican visual artist, Betsabee Romero. Just inside the entrance we were invited to participate in this offering for Day of the Dead.
