Upcoming Asian art sale

Arts of Vietnam: Duplex Paris - Hanoï

For this exceptional auction, a first of its kind, Millon is offering a duplex experience between Paris and Hanoi.

The session kicks off with a selection of works in bronze, lacquered wood, furniture, historical objects and porcelain from prestigious collections, including that of the late Empress Nam Phuong. This landmark edition also celebrates the centenary of the Indochina School of Fine Arts, highlighting a special section dedicated to this institution. You'll discover the masterpieces of Victor Tardieu, followed by a selection of the academy's travelling painters and eminent teachers. The tour will then take you on an exploration of the creations of the school's students, through to their contemporary works.
