The  following  is  taken  from  Wikipedia :

Vladimir Grigoryevich Tretchikoff, (13 December 1913 – 26 August 2006 ) was one of the most commercially successful artists of all time - his painting Chinese Girl (popularly known as "The Green Lady") is one of the best selling art prints ever.

Tretchikoff was a self-taught artist who painted realistic figures, portraits, still life and animals, with subjects often inspired by his early life in China and Malaysia, and later life in South Africa. Tretchikoff's work was immensely popular with the general public, but is often seen by art critics as the epitome of kitsch (indeed, he was nicknamed the "King of Kitsch"). He worked in oil, watercolour, ink, charcoal and pencil but is best known for his reproduction prints which sold worldwide in huge numbers. The reproductions were so popular that it was said Tretchikoff was second only to Picasso in his popularity. Indeed, apparently  the  city  of  Seattle  once  played  host  to simultaneous  art  shows : one  which  included  works  from  artists  such  as  Picasso  and  Rothko  and  the  other  a  show  dedicated  to  the  work  of  Tretchikoff. The  show which included Picasso and Rothko sold fewer tickets, to Tretchikoff’s satisfaction.One of his original canvases was recently sold at Sotheby's for more than R3 000 000.
