R.I.P. Tretchikoff

What sad news to report the death of the worlds gretest painter Vladimir Tretchikoff, the man who gave the world the kitsch mona lisa "The Green Lady".

He died in south africa on monday and a couple of thousand miles away my copy of the green lady dropped of the wall for no apparent reason, perhaps it was his works way of announcing that the "King of Kitsch" was dead.

You might be interested to know that my book Incredible Tretchikoff, the first complete biography of the artist, is finally available in Britain.

My publisher, an new independent company called Art /Books, did a splendid job. It’s a very beautiful edition.

You can see the preview at

I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading Incredible Tretchikoff. Please, help us to spread the word.

With best wishes,
