Emile Fillioux 私人收藏(1920年至1947年收藏於河內)


The current owners of lots 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2021 and 2023 inherited the paintings from their mother, Claude Madoc-Jones (ne Fillioux), who was born in Hanoi in 1930. The pieces were collected by her father Emile Fillioux, who left France for Indo-China in the early 1920s to work as an engineer on the Haiphong to Kunming railway. In this capacity he often travelled between Hanoi, where the family was based, and Kunming. Emile Fillioux remained in Vietnam until 1947.


拍品2016、2017、2018、2019、2021 及2023 由現藏家直接繼承自其母親(1930年生於河內)。1920年代初,現藏家的父親離開法國前往中南半島擔任海防至昆明的鐵路工程師,並在此期間購藏此六件漆畫。由於工作關係,他經常往返昆明及家人長居之河內,並逗留越南至1947年。
