Frida Kahlo's bed was an integral part of her practice. After a tragic bus accident left Kahlo with a lifelong back injury she was bed-ridden for over a year in recovery. This time in her life served as a turning point that ultimately began her painting career, painting family, friends and self portraits from the perspective of her bed.
This image of her bed was recently taken by Cleve Carney Museum of Art Curator, Justin Witte at the Frida Kahlo Museum. Because Kahlo died in this room in 1954, her death mask has been placed on the bed.
