One of the masters of the 20th century Vietnamese painting, Le Pho (b.1907) came from a family of Mandarins - his father was the Viceroy of Tonkin. Le Pho was the tenth child in a family of twenty, fathered by the senior mandarin Le Hoan. Pho started painting at the age of 16, enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux Arts de l'Indochine in Hanoi and also taught painting. Le Pho traveled to Paris in 1932 to continue his art education at the Ecole des Beaux Arts.

On his return to Hanoi he was appointed as professor in the Hanoi Ecole des Beaux-Arts. In 1937 the artist went back to Paris as the artistic director of the Indochinese section at the Paris International Exhibition and as a jury member, and settled in Paris permanently. He had been the artistic advisor to the Embassy of Viet Nam in Paris, and regularly exhibited at the Salon d’Automne and the Salon des Independants.

The artist was famous for his poetic paintings of flowers and women. Pho later married the French journalist of Times and Life, Paulette Vaux.
Le Pho's artwork could be generally divided into two categories - the pastoral scenes in impressionist style with Vietnamese beauties and the very fine, calligraphic work done on silk, a blend of East and West techniques and aesthetics. Pho's works are presented in the Permanent collection of the Museum d’Art Moderne in Paris. He died in 2001.

  1. Flowers and women have always been linked. This could be due to the affinity that women have for flowers and also due to the fact that they serve as a wonderful way to cheer women up. They have also helped lovers unite.
