CHEVY CHASE, MD. — A vibrant yellow-toned composition depicting a woman and man with vase of flowers by Vietnamese French artist Le Pho (1907-2001) brightened Sloans & Kenyon’s July 30 sale when it bloomed to $158,600 from a private collector from the Philippines bidding on the phone. They prevailed against six other phone bidders who were competing on the lot, five of them from four countries in Europe and Asia. The work, done in oil on canvas that measured 32 by 39 inches, had previously been handled by the New York City gallerist Wally Findlay.
Prices quoted include the buyer’s premium as reported by the auction house.
