Retro prints by Tretchikoff and JH Lynch are very much in demand and it is getting incredibly hard to find good examples. One artist who is up there in the kitsch hall of fame is Lou Shabner whose work is highly sought after in USA and Japan but hasn't received the same attention this side of the world. His name, and the look of portraits, suggests he might be American, but he was in fact born in Enfield in UK and is said to have based the first portraits on Jackie O. I have a collection of Shabner prints for sale at the moment and first up is this beautiful portrait of Melanie is a fine example in her original frame. POA
