Footnotes

  • The flower sellers of the Cape were amongst Tretchikoff's favourite subjects. Howard Timmins remarks of a work on the same theme that "the flower sellers of Cape Town are known almost throughout the world. They have long since become a colourful landmark of one of the world's most famous ports". In the current lot, Tretchikoff uses the familiar "experimental" combination of rich pigment hues (including blue tints for the highlights of the face) in key areas, with other areas drawn in charcoal directly onto the brown canvas.
