LÊ PHỔ (1907-2001)
La maternité, circa 1960 Oil and gouache on silk, signed lower right 81 x 50,5 cm - 31 7/8 x 31 3/4 in. Lê Phổ’s trip to Europe in the early thirties had a profound effect on his work, which was nourished throughout his life by the arts from international Gothic to twentieth-century modernism. Here, the artist chooses to transport us into the intimacy of a mother tenderly embracing her sleeping child, skilfully illustrating Maurice Denis’s description of Gothic and Renaissance painters.
