I've always loved Vladimir Tretchikoff's paintings. I think it's his use of color I most love, those gold and emerald greens are so rich and striking. Chinese Girl (above) and Lady From Orient (right) are MY favorite Tretchikoff paintings, his most famous works. Tretchikoff is one of the most commercially successful artists of all time. Chinese Girl is one of the best selling prints ever and has been printed on everything from mugs to pillow cases. I'm actually on the hunt for the pillow cases at the moment. I spotted some in a shop in Clapham some years ago but stupidly didn't purchase them. The retro mugs are on order and if my partner is reading this, anything with Tretchikoff's Oriental ladies on them will make me gush rainbows and glitter for days. For those of you not familiar with the works of Vladimir Tretchikoff, I've included his official website below, so you can read up on him and see more of his marvelous paintings.
