We’d say that our taste in art is – well – tasteful. However, we have a soft spot for vintage 50s kitsch prints. We have a few of Vladimir Tretchikoff‘s prints – Lady from the Orient, Balinese Girl, The Chinese Girl, Miss Wong and Zulu Girl.
CLIC Sargent: Caring for Children with Cancer* is currently selling this 50s kitsch print entitled ‘Chiquita’. She’s a beautiful, either Spanish or Mexican, senorita with a flirtatious off-the-shoulder blouse and rose in her hair. We don’t know who she’s by, but she is in the style of other artists such as H. Walker, J H Lynch and John Strevens.
*CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. They provide clinical, practical and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life. They are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.
