As a graduate of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts d’Indochine Le Pho would move to Paris where he could study the great European modern masters. For Le Pho, the works of Pierre Bonnard opened up a new realm of light and color. As seen in the present lot the artist experimented with the iridescent qualities of fleeting light and rich color. Le Pho embraced French Impressionist notions of form, texture and chromatic allure, and his paintings would often exude a golden warmth, bright light and broad brushstrokes.
