The afternoon of day 4 of the Frida & Diego Mexico City Tour took us to Anahuacalli, Diego Rivera’s Museum and Studio. This magnificent structure, also located in Coyoacán, was to be his archeological museum and studio. Designed by Diego, he called it “my composite of Aztec, Mayan and ‘Rivera Traditional’ styles”. Diego was an avid collector of pre-Hispanic artifacts amassing over 60,000 pieces during his lifetime. Located on the 2nd floor, the cavernous studio houses some of his immense preliminary sketches which served as the basis for some of his most important works. The studio’s large north facing windows provide for magnificent light, unfortunately Diego died in 1957, prior to the museum’s completion, and he never got to occupy it.
