''Museo Estudio Diego Rivera From December of 1986 it is a site museum, that conserves, it preserves, it studies, it exhibits and it spreads to the life and the work of the muralist painter guanajuatense Diego Rivera, of its wife, the painter Frida Kahlo, as well as of the painter Juan O'Gorman and his contemporaries, nationals and foreigners.'' Destination Guide
 
This gallery shows many of the pieces of art work that is on permanent exhibition in the Museo Casa- Estudio.
 
The body of the museum is constituted from what was the House- Studio of Diego Rivera and the private collection of the painter: easel works, drawings, books, pieces of pre-Columbian art, as well as documents and personal belongings, make up a lot of the collection.

 

The Permanent Collection shows work by many artists who inspired Diego, and whom the couple where friends with. There are many examples of folk art and ceramics and pre-Columbian art. Over time, pictorial work of the artist, has been incorporated to this collection.

There are examples of sketches and drawings in their early stage and unfinished watercolours and oil paintings, that are simply an example of the many productions of Rivera, but also it adds to the house being a working studio also.

Considering there is no other record on the Internet, and no handy informative pamphlets at the museum, i hope this goes some way to give an insight into the work at the Museo Casa- Estudio
