More about the Chinese Girl:

Chinese Girl is Tretchikoff’s most well known and celebrated works. It is one of the highest-selling, and most reproduced prints of the 20th century and its allure has endured.

Tretchikoff was able to capture a universal notion of Chinese womanhood. The painting captures the exotic charm of a young Chinese woman, distinctively characterised by an unconventional blue-green skin tone, earning its colloquial title, 'The Green Lady'. This striking feature imbues the piece with an enigmatic aura and adds a unique dimension to Tretchikoff’s exploration of feminine beauty and mystique, her deferred gaze is what keeps us looking. The blend of oriental charm and surreal coloration results in a captivating visual experience, marking the Chinese Girl as an iconic symbol in art history.
