Le Ba Dang: 1922 (Vietnam)

The Artist:

Le Ba Dang was born in Vietnam in 1922. He moved to France in 1940 to pursue an art career at Ecole de Beaus Arts de Toulouse. While studying there he was awarded prizes for painting, drawing, and sculpture and won his first commission.

By 1950 the Paris art community had recognized Le Ba Dang's work, appreciating the blend of European and Far Eastern culture and philosophies reflected in it. The director of the Far Eastern Department at UNESCO commissioned Le Ba Dang to illustrate a book of poetry, published by Editions Euros. Le Ba Dang was first represented in the United States, in 1966, with an exhibition of his paintings at the Cincinnati Art Museum. In describing Le Ba Dang's art today critics remark that it incorporates everyday subjects into dream-like expressions of thought. Le Ba Dang, an accomplished printmaker, favors the techniques of etching, lithograph, and serigraph.

Le Ba Dang's work is exhibited in Dusseldorf, Paris, Nantes, Cologne, Cannes and Aix en Provence galleries. His work is owned in permanent private and public collections including: Rockefeller Collection, New York; Loo Collection in Tokyo; Verkerke Collection, Holland; Phoenix Art Museum, USA; Cincinnati Museum, USA; Columbia Art Institute, USA; Lund University Museum, Sweden; Foundation Museum, Kenya; and the Museum of Arts and Letters, France.

The Art:

Le Ba Dang's work is recognized for its unique integration of colors. A minimum of colors, using the same silkscreens several times creates a trademark harmony. La Ba Dang's compositions are free from restraint, and at the same time they are balanced in design and form.
