Tretchikoff's work consisted mostly of portraits, still life, animals, or exotic flowers, however he was most known for the portraits he painted of women. This study of an oriental beauty strikingly illustrates the artist's unconventional use of colour. Because he spent so many years in the East, where colour reigns supreme, the artist became attracted to colour designs. He found that people like to have colour in their lives, especially women, who are often moved to tears by colour alone. There is no secret in his colour application - he uses pure colours to combine on the canvas rather than mixing them on the palette beforehand. As the most successful commercial artist of his era, this and other Tretchikoff prints, adorned many houses during the 1950's and 1960's and have even become icons of the Twentieth century.
