January 16, 2013

Vu Cao Dam was born on January 8, 1908 in Hanoi, Vietnam. A member of a large Catholic family, the artist was the fifth of fourteen children. His extensive studies of the French language, as well as a trip to Paris in 1889, left Vu Dinh Thi with a long-lasting fondness for French culture.
