Frida Kahlo is known for her works which focused on Mexican culture and life experience. She is widely considered as one of Mexico’s greatest artists. She is also known for painting a number of self-portraits saying “I paint myself because I am often alone and I am the subject I know best.”

The first in the lineup is a high-top that features The Two Fridas (1939).
