Catalogue Note

"To harmonize his own temperament and his technique, Le Pho has preserved the process of painting on silk. The very delicacy of the material on which the painting is executed demands a refinement of design and of color to which present day art is not accustomed. But it is precisely this recourse to the art of another age which demonstrates the audacity of this artist and the interest inherent in his efforts."
