We were pleased to present this painting by Le Pho from his sought-after Findlay period, Fleurs, in our major Spring 2021 Asian Art auction.

Amelia Zhu, Asian Art Specialist at Waddington’s, noted that “this painting is a perfect representation of Le Pho’s ‘Findlay Period,’ featuring his iconic young Hanoi women dressed in áo dài, situated in a lush garden setting with refreshing bright colours, and with a French Impressionistic touch under the direct influence of Pierre Bonnard. This tightly entwines Eastern-Western visuality, creating a romantic and dreamy world. Coupled with its large size, if you are seeking to add a representative work from Le Pho, this would be the painting.”
