Christie’s is delighted to present, on the occasion of the 7th edition of Printemps Asiatique Paris, a selection of Vietnamese artworks from the Melchior Dejouany Collection.

Bringing together eleven exceptional works by nine distinguished Vietnamese artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, this exhibition invites viewers on a captivating journey through the timeless allure of Vietnam. Thanks to his discerning eyes and the invaluable guidance of renowned Vietnamese art specialist Jean-François Hubert, Melchior Dejouany’s collection has flourished over the past decade, spanning a diverse range of mediums. Over the years, his collection has brought together works that witnessed eighty years of Vietnamese art (1935-2015), featuring pieces by prominent figures of the Indochina School of Fine Arts, such as Nguyen Gia Tri, Le Pho, Vu Cao Dam, and Luong Xuan Nhi, among others, as well as talented contemporary artists who are yet to receive widespread recognition, such as Nguyen Trung, Trong Be, and Boi Tran.

This exhibition, running alongside our Asian Art sales, will take place at Christie’s Paris from June 8th till 13th.
