Museum hosts Kahlo show in her childhood home

A series of art-related events are being staged throughout Mexico this year to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the death of artist Frida Kahlo. The recently restored Frida Kahlo Museum, housed in Kahlo's childhood home in Mexico City, is hosting the largest exposition of the artist's work to date.

Along with the 46 oil paintings, the museum offers visitors the chance to glimpse into Kahlo's life -- the house was where she was born, grew up and later lived with her famed muralist husband Diego Rivera from 1941 until her death at age 47 in 1954.
