Marseille 1894 – Paris 1989
A student of Maurice Denis, with whom she constantly corresponded throughout her career, Alix
Aymé fell in love with the continent of Asia during her first trip there with her husband, who was sent
to China by the French government. She travelled all over Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam for more
than twenty years. Appointed professor at the Indochina School of Fine Arts, she contributed
alongside Inguimberty to the revival of lacquerwork. Her works represent a fusion between the Nabi
style, which she was influenced by, and traditional Vietnamese painting which she took a liking to.
Our evaluation enables us to assert the pictorial and technical quality as well as the condition of a
work before giving an evaluation of its historical and cultural interest. Advice may be given in terms
of additional research to be conducted and also an estimate, whether the work is intended for
auction or to be sold through another means.
