Note: All items are sold "AS IS/AS DESCRIBED", to the best of our knowledge, research and ability. ITEM DESCRIPTION: is an Absolutely Beautiful Vintage Mid Century Print titled “Lost Orchid, South Africa”, by the famous listed artist ‘Vladimir Griegorovich Tretchikoff’ (Russian born-South African, 1913-2006), whose printed signature appears lower right in the image area along with the date ‘1948’. ‘A much-discussed canvas; for in spite of its almost startling simplicity, t is a wealth of drama contained in this composition. This is certainly no “Still” life. The teardrop is consistent with the artist’s belief that flowers are capable of feelings and even simple emotions.’, and ‘Reproduced from the original painting by Tretchikoff By courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Dawson, New York, U.S.A.’, as appeared printed on the back of the backing sheet which is no longer with the piece. The publisher is unknown. Print is circa 1948 in Excellent Popular condition with No Color Fade! The Print has been in a drawer among other prints since it was purchased by Walter Meibohm and has not seen the light-of-day in all this time-it’s as beautiful as the day it was printed and the colors are still bright. Size is 10-1/16 x 9-9/16. Minimal light creasing & t in the image area which aren’t really that noticeable at all, and slight creasing in the upper & lower right corners with ink cracking which can easily be framed out-I put archival tape behind the upper right crease for protection since it is somewhat fragile. No Foxing and No Tears. Minimal edge wear. This Beautiful Vintage Mid Century Print Has Never Been Framed. CLICK PICTURE TO SUPERSIZE PAYING FOR YOUR ITEM: DOMESTIC PAYMENTS...
