Lot description
"Seated Nude" Nguyen Thanh Binh is a sublime and visually tranquil oil painting by famed Vietnamese artist, Nguyen Thanh Binh, depicting a young woman in the nude, kneeling on the floor as if meditating. Here, she sits at the left side of the vertical composition, with the negative space that surrounds her. Simple treatment of the interior is used to redirect attention towards her nude figure, as well as add harmony and tranquility to the overall composition. This young woman is depicted from the posterior, with her porcelain skin of her back in luminous contrast to her long dark hair tied back in a ponytail in a lavender band. "Seated Nude" measures 37.40 x 31.50 inches, (95 x 80 cm) and is in excellent condition. This work is accompanied by a formal certificate of authenticity.

Nguyen Thanh Binh (Vietnam, b. 1954) is famous for his paintings of individuals from his native Vietnam that capture a specific emotional moment in time, either experienced alone or in groups. His inherent stylistic theme is to present the figures usually dressed in whites and soft colors against simple backgrounds, creating compositions that are peaceful, thoughtful, sophisticated and harmonious. His paintings of women and young children usually painted in a monochrome palette of whites and taupe, are his most sought-after internationally. Nguyen Thanh Binh is one of the most well-known Vietnamese painters working today and has exhibited in Museums and Galleries internationally.
