We can all relate to Tretchikoff’s painting entitled ‘Blue Monday’. “Monday Morning feeling needs no explanation, and the Monday Blues are not the prerogative of artists! Tretchikoff, however, is particularly susceptible, so much so that he refuses to paint on this day whenever possible. Here is the artist at a loss for inspiration, the very colours clash in warring disharmony within his mind.” – Howard Timmins #Tretchikoff #art #Painitng #BlueMonday #MondayBlues
Tretchikoff’s ‘Dahlias’: Dahlia’s are native to Mexico and very popular in South Africa – Tretchikoff enhances these beauties by adding an eastern setting through the use of the oriental vase.
Tretchikoff’s ‘African Drummer’: “The viewer senses the rhythmic intoxication as the drummer beats out the language of the drums, which could spell danger, or –a dance.” – Tretchikoff by Howard Timmins
Tretchikoff’s ‘The Inspiration’: “Through a sea of colours comes woman – as yet unformed – half spirit, half flesh. Tretchikoff is firmly persuaded that, as with the Muses of Greek mythology, women have inspired his better achievements.” – Tretchikoff by Howard Timmins
