A tribute to Pricess Di with a twist

Diana Tretchikoff by York-born artist David Kettley.

Kettley enjoyed Tretchikoff’s work since his early teens when the prints were sold in high-street shops.

‘Tretchikoff’s painting of Miss Wong has been an important icon to me’, says the artist. ‘When I decided to embark on a portrait of Diana, I wanted to emphasise her own iconic status. Combining the two images gave me the opportunity to show my respect to both Tretchikoff and Diana.’
