Close rate: 90.00% (36/40)
Auction introduction: A mélange of rich Vietnamese tradition and French allure, La Mystique de L’Indochine is a curated selection of paintings hailing from Vietnam’s halcyon days. Featuring sentimentalized vignettes rendered with oil paint, watercolor and lacquer, this variegated selection highlights the influence that Vietnam’s Golden Age of art (1930-1945) had throughout the 20th century. Inspired by idealized themes, artists found themselves entrenched in a heartening new canon of modern art, which ultimately developed into a delightful synthesis of Vietnamese and French artistic styles.
