It was never going to be easy to convince the South African art establishment that a retrospective of Vladimir Tretchikoff's work had any merit, least of all in the hallowed halls of the Iziko South African National Gallery. An overview of press releases and reviews which preceded and accompanied the show makes this abundantly clear (see Preller 2011). However, through the efforts mainly of UCT academic, Andrew Lamprecht, the curator of the retrospective and editor of the publication, the show not only materialised but was accompanied by the first publication on Tretchikoff's work not facilitated or authorised by the artist himself.
