Being a big fan of the kitschness that is Tretchikoff and Lynch it stands to reason I'd also adore the work of Lou Shabner. I assumed Shabner to be American since the ladies he painted have a very American 60s & 70s look to them and much of his work seems to turn up in the States however, having tried unsuccessfully to find out more about him I found a site that suggests Shabner was born in Enfield (London) - can anyone refute or confirm this and perhaps add some more info about the life and work of Shabner? I'd be grateful for any input.

Thanks for the link Sue, those particular images look very forties & fifties don't they? Personally, I prefer the 60s & 70s ones - see the links below to some I'd really like to own:-

It reminded me of that series Pan Am, or was it Mad Men???? But yes, very typical of the period and the trends she set.
