Lot Essay

“No one better than [Inguimberty] could restitute this tropical light, so different to ours, this bright light, implacable, painful to the eyes, metallic, his white dazzling skies, the acidity in the greens during the wet season, a powerful vibration you can't find in our latitudes”

Pierre Gourou, “Le Delta Tonkinois” in Le Monde Colonial Illustré, 1st January 1937
