Among The Orchids by Lillian Shao. Lillian Shao "Among the Orchids" hand embellished mixed media. Hand signed by artist. Limited edition numbered L/LX (50/60).
Lillian Shao is a modern phenomenon, and was given a sense of legitimacy by the work of Andy Warhol, who, along with other pop artists, permanently blurred the line between commercial and "fine" art. With the untimely death of Patrick Nagel, and the passing of Erte, Shao has become the standard bearer of this remarkably popular school of art. While Erte's beautifully styled women were often doll-like, and Nagel's women reflected the super polished and sleek style of the Seventies, Shao's women have a distinct sense of depth and feeling that engages the viewer at an emotional level. She conveys not merely an image, but also a mood.
