Mai Trung Thu, also known as Mai Thu, who lived from 1906 to 1980, is a famous painter in Vietnamese contemporary art especially during the early 20th century.

April this year saw his painting Portrait de Mademoiselle Phuong (Portrait of Madame Phuong) fetch a record price of US$3.1 million at Sotheby's Hong Kong Auction, thereby representing the highest price ever paid for a piece of Vietnamese artwork.

The exhibition is running with the theme of Écho d’un Vietnam Rêvé (Echo of a Dreamed Vietnam), and will open with support from the artist’s daughter Mai Lan Phuong in partnership with the Cernuschi Museum.
