La Mystique de L’Indochine recalls Vietnam’s Golden Age of art, which spans a fifteen-year period from the establishment of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts d’Indochine in Hanoi in 1930. The auction presents a mélange of rich Vietnamese tradition and French allure.


Owing to the country’s colonial past, foreign influences are discernible in the art, especially as many pioneers of Vietnamese modern art, such as Le Pho, Mai Thrung Thu, Vu Cao Dam, emigrated to France or studied at the prestigious Ecole in Hanoi before World War II. Reinterpreting and synthesizing French post-Impressionist trends, prominent artists mastered European techniques and media to express traditional Asian subjects and ideas, thus creating a distinctive style.


The works in La Mystique de L’Indochine showcases sentimentalized vignettes rendered with oil paint, watercolor and lacquer. Artists found themselves entrenched in a new canon of modern art, which ultimately developed into a delightful integration of Vietnamese and French artistic styles.
