MAI TRUNG THỨ (1906-1980)
Deux enfants à la lecture, 1941 Ink and color on silk, signed and dated lower left 16 7/8 x 10 7/8 in A patriotic artist who is proud of his origins, Mai Trung Thứ has never ceased to pay homage to Vietnam through the representation of characters evoking his native country: family in traditional dress, young woman with Asian canons, children playing Cờ tướng... The piece presented echoes the two young children on a yellow background that the artist also produces. In the same way, two children take place in the center of the composition, immersed in their thoughts, whose shimmering palette of the artist participates in the expressiveness of the children. The balance of the pyramidal composition is based on the movement of the young children in reflection. One, dressed in yellow, delicately holds his chin, pointing to a passage in his work, while the second, in blue, holds his head, concentrated.
