Lê Phổ (2 August 1907 - 12 December 2001) was a Vietnamese painter. In 1932, he earned a scholarship to study at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Upon returning to Vietnam he taught at the Indochine School of Fine Arts in Hanoi. In 1937, he came back to Paris where he resided until the time of his death - one of four EBAI graduates who made a career in Paris, including Mai Trung Thứ, Vũ Cao Đàm and woman painter Lê Thị Lựu. He painted sceneries of Vietnam, still life with flowers, family settings and portraits. Vietnamese women, most often portrayed as elongated figures evoking the influence of surrealism, are a recurrent theme in his work.
Le Pho (1902-2001) is an important Vietnamese artist along with Vu Cao Dam. Born in 1902 son of Le Hoan, a senior mandarin, Le Pho received a comprehensive education, including training in brush training. At the age of 18 Le Pho went on to study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Hanoi for five years. Afterwards for two years he then studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
