Nguyen Van Ty (1917-1992) Indochina... - Lot 266 - Lynda Trouvé
Nguyen Van Ty (1917-1992) Indochina School of Fine Arts / Class of 1941. Hoi Dinh Chèm (Chèm village festival) Polychrome lacquer and gold; on a black background with small eggshell inlays. 1942. Composition of five panels, signed lower left. Total dimensions: 98x245 cm, dimensions per panel: 98x49 cm. Very good state of conservation. This piece, very emblematic of the revival of Art in Vietnam, dates from 1942, it is the third known interpretation of this work, it is also the only complete version of all its panels. Following the example of his other major work "The rapids of Cho-Bo", of which we know four versions produced between 1940 and 1942, "The village festival Chèm" was created on the same principle by Nguyen Van Ty during the same period. Of the artist's first known version, dated 1940, only one central panel seems to have survived out of the six original existing ones (lot 406, Lynda Trouvé Sale, Wednesday, March 18, 2020). The other panels seem to have been lost or unidentified. The second adaptation of "Hoi Dinh Chèm", also dated 1940, is currently on display at the Vietnam Museum of Fine Arts in Hanoi. It retains only three of the original five panels, both ends of which have been amputated. The work we present is the third known interpretation of this work, it is also exceptional because it is the only known variant, complete with all its panels. Provenance: Estate of Doctor François F. Haïphong. Lacquer purchased during the annual exhibition of the Indochina School of Fine Arts by a former doctor-surgeon working at the Haïphong hospital from 1928 to 1947, when he returned to France. The work then remained in the same family in Paris.
