Vladimir Tretchikoff was one of the most commercially successful artists of all time. Many of his paintings are the biggest selling prints ever and it is understood that he was second only to Picasso in popularity.
He became nicknamed as the 'King of Kitsch' by both art critics and his immense worldwide following, and his wonderfully painted portrayals of African women influenced many sculptures to reproduce his images using plaster, chalk and other materials during the mid c20th. Here for your collection is one such piece which faithfully captures the kitsch style of Tretchikoff in all of its glory.
The Juxtaposition of wonderful pastel blue colour with almost fluorescent orange coloured lips makes a statement upon this piece with their blatant combination, and the way with which this African lady has been sculptured & cast, captures the fashion of the 1950s in both style and form.
These sculpture-types have become termed as being 'Wall Masks' and have been designed to be wall-hung by the provision of a hanger to their reverse. The large variety of these items together with their eye-catching appeal makes these wall-masks hugely popular by collectors of today. It is not difficult to see why, as this particular piece looks sensational wherever it is suitable displayed. She will add dramatics to any wall space display area as I am sure you will agree.
I am not knowledgeable within the field of sculpture and though I do not interfere with items of vintage, I cannot know if the paintwork is original. I have no reason to think otherwise and I can also say that the piece is not a modern resin reproduction. It has been cast from a chalk substance or plaster. I would urge you to study my photographs, as they will speak far louder than my words whilst also forming the major part of describing this piece, with visual accuracy...
