Look out for.. the painting is of a Chinese girl and is best known for the unusual skin tone used for her face—a blue-green colour, which gives the painting its popular name "The Green Lady."
Did you know? The picture, which has been described as the most famous painting in the world, was inspired by Monika Sing-Lee who modelled for Tretchikoff after he spotted her at work in her uncle's launderette in Cape Town, South Africa.
