The Dreams of an Emigrant, by Vladimir Tretchikoff (1933)


"Wouldn't it be nice to own a car... a bank account... a private office... to dance in the evenings... and to live according to the latest fashion... Oh dreams, sweet dreams."
The Dreams of an Emigrant. A cartoon by Vladimir Tretchikoff. Published in Projector (Sept 30, 1933). Source: Russian humor and satire in China by A. Khisamutdinov

Tretchikoff spent five years in Shanghai as a young apprentice of the established Russian painter Kichigin. Then he went on to travel the world and become the "world's first pop artist."
