Artwork care centre gets go ahead (July 14, 2004)

Little Thuy by Tran Van Can.
The Ministry of Culture and Information has approved the Vietnam Fine Art Museum to establish its Centre for Preservation and Restoration of Vietnamese Art Works, to coincide with the return of Em Thuy (Little Thuy).

According to the director of the Vietnam Fine Art Museum, Truong Quoc Binh, among the 2,000 works on display, and the 20,000 odd objects held in the museum, Little Thuy by Tran Van Can is only one of 62 works suffering the ravages of time. Mr Binh said the hot and humid weather and lack of experience among curators for their preservation are the cause of the degradation.

Setting up a professional centre for the preservation and restoration of art works is not a simple task, he said, as it costs millions of US dollars.

He said, to establish such a centre, they would need technical help from several institutes in the country, and financial backing from individuals and organisations at home and abroad.
