This is a must see if you visit Mexico City. Walking into the former home of Frida and Diego felt so personal. Her work is already a diary on canvas, so seeing where she lived and created her art was so inspiring.
Viewing her work up close made me love her paintings even more - so full of pain, color and soul.
The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to and I paint whatever passes through my head without any further consideration. - Frida Kahlo

The viewpoint is oblique, with the figures seen slightly from above. The empty space is perplexing, both open and closed. Similarly, there is an emotional contrast between the dancer in a white tutu, who is “active,” and the formally dressed figure, who is “passive.” In effect, Degas succeeds in portraying a sense of isolation in the midst of a big city that is elsewhere pulsating with life, and it is this feeling of loneliness and anonymity in a crowd that is comparable with our own experiences of modern life.
