Documents kept at the Mexican National Archives explore the artist's role as a teacher educating a new generation of artists.
When her health got worse, after 1944, Frida Kahlo reduced her teaching schedule and proposed to her students to continue with the classes at her home, now known as the Blue House, Frida Kahlo Museum. She fostered the professional growth of its disciples with exhibitions, commissioned works and courses.
The art historian Raquel Tibol, in the book 'Frida Kahlo. An open life', recalls that Frida Kahlo's students obtained an education different from any other students: "Those who had the luck of having Frida Kahlo as a teacher, received much more than a didactic orientation. They were offered a way to live, to be and to think, very different from the usual, as well as national and social concerns, a unique vision of the Mexican people and, in addition, a delicious sense of humor, 'populachero' and refined at the same time".
