Le Thi LUU ✿

Le Thi Luu - Lê Thị Lựu (1911-1988) was a Vietnamese woman painter. She was one of the rare notable female alumni of Victor Tardieu's École des Beaux-Arts de l’Indochine in Hanoi.
With Mai Trung Thứ, Lê Phổ and Vũ Cao Đàm she was one of four Vietnamese artists in the 1930s to emigrate to and make a career in Paris. She used to be a teacher at Bưởi school, where her students included Phan Kế An, who also became a famous painter.
In the 1950s, Le Thi Luu immersed herself in Vietnamese cultural roots with a series of ink and pigment works on silk. The artist’s favorite subject is Vietnamese women and children with radiant faces, realistically expressed. She is famous for her ability to combine colors, light, and delicate strokes, leading viewers to a peaceful, soft and luxurious space.

Her paintings are shown in many galleries in Paris. Since 1962, Le Thi Luu has taught at the Lycée Corot, Lycée Rodin Paris and Lycée d’Orsay schools. Since 1971, she retired and moved to the South of France. She passed away in 1988.
