Than Le Guyen (1919-2003)

On a River with Boats and People & Fish in the Sea

both signed, lacquer on panel, a pair, painted circa 1950s

61 x 122.5 cm each

Lacquer painting is very much a technique of Vietnamese school of art in Hanoi and elsewhere in Vietnam. This is a magnificent pair of panels by an artist whose auction value is climbing and we foresee a huge interest in his work in the coming years.

The Vietnamese river with a boats full of people narrates life of the people of Vietnam on the river as nowhere else.
