Balinese dancer signed 'Tretchikoff' (lower left) oil on canvas 59 x 122cm (23 1/4 x 48 1/16in).
"All the mystic fascination of the women of the Orient has been captured in this canvas. The baffling subtlety of the expression contains all that the mind of the West finds difficult to grasp in Eastern passivity of purpose."
