Born in 1950
Pierre Le-Tan was born 1950 in Neuilly near Paris. He learned how to draw in the studio of his father, the painter
Le-Pho, a well known Chinese artist. After having spent three months at the Paris Academie des Arts Décoratifs, he de-
cided to quit and aged hardly 18, published the first of numerous covers for The New Yorker.
Work for Magazines
Pierre Le-Tan’s drawings are published in Vogue, Madame Figaro, Tattler, The New York Times Magazine, Atlantic Monthly, Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country, The World of Interiors etc. and have brought him international fame.
Like Christian Bérard, 50 years earlier, he has become a cult figure for a small set of bright and sophisticated aesthetes.
Cooperation with Patrick Modiano
Pierre Le-Tan ist the author of numerous books, some of them in collaboration with his friend, the French writer Patrick Modiano. He is also a very original art collector and a much sought after interior decorator.
