As I have traveled several times to Mexico to study the works of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera— once to see a retrospective on the 50th anniversary of her death and another retrospective on the 100th anniversary of her birth at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City,I was hoping to see some different works that I hadn’t seen before.
A few of her paintings
and some of Diego’s paintings,
plus paintings by several of her contemporaries. I really enjoyed seeing photographs of Frida and Diego that I hadn’t seen before!
and enjoyed specialties from Mexico Frida and Diego would have liked. My Chicken mole with grilled onions, baby corn and mushrooms was excellent!
After lunch we walked the museum sculpture garden and enjoyed the humor in some of the selections of artwork. The garden itself was beautifully planted and each sculpture was set in a sort of outdoor room.
We had a little bit of time before leaving to avoid rush hour traffic to tour some of the other permanent museum collections in their recently enlarged building. Here are a few of my favorites:
As it is what we call “ Season” for us year round residents, the traffic was heavy when we left. After clearing the toll plaza in Weston it was smooth sailing in quiet the rest of the way home. I shall definitely return to the Norton Museum again!
