From Antiques and The Arts Weekly – July 15, 2022 – DETROIT, MICH. — DuMouchelles Auctions con- ducted its two-day monthly sale on May 19 and 20, showcasing nearly 1,000 lots of fine art, decorative art and jewelry. The top lot of both was an ominous portrait of an unidentified young woman by the Vietnamese artist Dô Quang Em (1942-2021), which sold for $26,400. Born in what was known as French Indochina while under Japanese occupation, Em graduated from the Gia Dinh College of Fine Arts in 1965 during the Vietnam War (1955-75). Painted in 1973, this haunting image predates Em’s intern- ment in a government reeducation camp following the war. His work has been mainly exhibited in Hong Kong and is represented in the collection of former president Bill Clinton. For information, 313- 963-6255 or www.dumouchelles.com.
