EXHIBITION

Lacquer Painting Exhibition “Nature – Nostalgia”

Institut Français de Hanoi – L’Espace

24 Trang Tien, Hanoi

Dang Thu Huong, Ly Truc Son and Nguyen Thi Que, artists of the first generation of the Vietnamese School of Fine Arts, explored the oriental art of sanded lacquer throughout the 1990s. The destructive war brought them closer to nature which in turn inspired them with simple subjects: flowers, people, the countryside… The charm of their works resides in the sparkling of the lacquer and its red, black, silver and gold palette.

Free entry
