Vladimir Tretchikoff famous Chinese Girl

A print of the Vladimir Tretchikoff  famous Chinese Girl. A mesmerizing image of a beautiful blue-faced, red lipped Asian lady, said to have sold more reproductions than the Mona Lisa.
Tretchikoff was the first artist to make and sell reproductions of his work, making it affordable and accessible to all. At the time, art critics objected, saying he was devaluing and commercialising art. To which he responded, "Why should my art only be available to the rich and famous? I want everyone to enjoy my art."
