Nguyen Gia Tri was born in 1908 in the Hanoi neighborhood of Chuong My. He graduated from the Indochina College of Fine Arts in 1936. He is considered one of the four masters of Vietnamese painting, as well as one of the most important lacquer artists ever.
His artworks were often made with delicate and high-quality paints, screens and wooden boards. The majority of his works portray nature and the landscapes of Vietnam.
Many high-ranking French officials and businessmen in Indochina visited him and bought his works.
He died in Ho Chi Minh City in 1993.
In January 2023, his painting “Villageoises chez les bananiers” was sold for $1.08 million by French auction house Drouot Estimates.
