robert brady home American Artist


Here's the converted convent home of American artist Robert Brady. It's in the busy city of Cuernavaca, MX.
Today, it is a museum and it also serves to host small musical venues, dances and other gatherings.

In this collection the photographs included are from my trip to Mexico in January 2015. There are exterior and interior views which reflect -well the artist's vision of a comfortable, cozy and fun home.

It has (2) bedrooms, (2) full baths, living room, small kitchen, bar area near the pool, a courtyard, and caretaker quarters.


Here an original carved door from the courtyard. The scroll work on the door is in the spanish colonial style.
