The artist Le Pho

  • Vietnamese painter associated with Post-Impressionism
  • Combined Oriental artistry with influences of contemporary Western art.
  • Painted mainly Vietnamese landscapes, still lifes with flowers, family situations and portraits.

The Vietnamese painter Lê Phổ was born in Hanoi on 02.08.1907 and studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Hanoi from 1925 to 1930. Thanks to a scholarship, he continued his studies at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Here he learned from Victor Tardieu, a former classmate and friend of Henri Matisse. After graduating, he initially returned to Hanoi, but moved back to Paris in 1937, where his first solo exhibition took place a year later. This exhibition marked the start of his career as an artist in Europe. It was then followed by exhibitions in Nice, Lyon, Strasbourg, Nantes, Brussels, Algiers, Casablanca, Caracas, Buenos Aires, New York and San Francisco, to name but a few.

He also exhibited regularly at the Salon des Independants (Paris) and was a winner at the International Beaux-Arts Exhibition in Ho Chi Minh City. Despite travelling extensively, Lê Phổ lived and worked in Paris from 1937 until his death on 02.12.2001. Before his passing, he donated 20 of his works to the Vietnamese National Museum of Fine Arts.

In the course of his life, changes in Phổs painting style can be discerned. For instance, his work from his time in Hanoi and his first years in Paris mainly depicts Vietnamese landscapes suffused with nostalgia and historical splendour. In the 1930s and early 40s, he painted mainly bamboo, birds and lotus blossoms with watercolour on silk using long, thin brushes. Inspired and influenced by artists such as Pierre Bonnard and Odilon Redon, sensual female figures, often portrayed in an interior setting, were added to his motifs from the 1950s onwards.

The often elongated figures suggest a Surrealist influence, but overall the majority of Phổ's work is classified as Post-Impressionist. In 1963, the US gallerist Wally Findlay (owner of Findlay Galleries) became aware of Phổ's work and sold many of his pieces on the US market. Now painting mainly in oils on canvas, Phổ surrounded his female figures, clearly depicted as Vietnamese, with lush, opulent landscapes. His internationally best-known works date from this period.

Der Künstler Le Pho

  • Vietnamesischer Maler, der dem Post-Impressionismus zugeordnet wird.
  • Verbindet orientalische Kunstfertigkeit mit Einflüssen zeitgenössischer westlicher Kunst.
  • Malte hauptsächlich vietnamesische Landschaften, Stillleben, Familiensituationen und Porträts.

Der vietnamesische Maler Lê Phổ wurde am 02.08.1907 in Hanoi geboren und studierte von 1925 bis 1930 an der Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Hanoi. Dank eines Stipendiums führte er sein Studium im Anschluss an der École des Beaux-Arts in Paris weiter. Hier lernte er u. a. von Victor Tardieu, einem ehemaligen Klassenkameraden und Freund von Henri Matisse. Nach seinem Abschluss kehrte er zunächst zurück nach Hanoi, zog 1937 aber erneut nach Paris, wo ein Jahr später seine erste Einzelausstellung stattfand. Diese Ausstellung markierte den Start seiner Künstlerkarriere in Europa. Ihr folgten nach und nach Ausstellungen u. a. in Nizza, Lyon, Straßburg, Nantes, Brüssel, Algier, Casablanca, Caracas, Buenos Aires, New York und San Francisco.

Zudem stellte er regelmäßig im Salon des Independants (Paris) aus und war Gewinner in der Internationalen Ausstellung der Beaux-Arts in Ho-Chi-Minh-Stadt. Lê Phổ wohnte und arbeitete trotz vieler Reisen von 1937 bis zu seinem Tod am 02.12.2001 in Paris. Vor seinem Ableben spendete er 20 seiner Werke an das Vietnamesische Nationalmuseum der Schönen Künste.

Im Verlauf seines Lebens lassen sich Veränderungen in Phổs Malweise erkennen. So bilden seine Arbeiten aus der Zeit in Hanoi und den ersten Jahren in Paris vor allem von Nostalgie und historischer Pracht durchzogene vietnamesische Landschaften ab. In den 1930ern und frühen 40ern malte er mit langen, dünnen Pinseln vor allem Bambus, Vögel und Lotusblüten mit Wasserfarbe auf Seide. Von Künstlern wie Pierre Bonnard und Odilon Redon inspiriert und beeinflusst, kamen zu seinen Motiven ab den 1950ern sinnliche Frauengestalten, oft in einem Interieur-Setting porträtiert, hinzu.

Die oftmals elongierten Gestalten lassen einen surrealistischen Einfluss vermuten, insgesamt wird der Großteil von Phổs Werken aber dem Post-Impressionismus zugeordnet. 1963 wurde der US-amerikanische Gallerist Wally Findlay (Besitzer von Findlay Galleries) auf Phổs Arbeiten aufmerksam und verkaufte viele seiner Stücke auf dem US-amerikanischen Markt. Jetzt malte Phổ hauptsächlich mit Öl auf Leinwände, auf denen er seine deutlich als vietnamesisch dargestellten Frauenfiguren mit üppig-opulenten Landschaften umgab. Aus dieser Zeit stammen seine international bekanntesten Werke.
