Vietnam folklore paintings displayed (February 03, 2007)


One hundred and seventy eight Dong Ho and Hang Trong folk paintings are now on display at the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Museum.

In addition to films showing the process of making Dong Ho and Hang Trong paintings, the organising board has invited artisan Le Dinh Nghiem, who is one of the two oldest artisans of Dong Ho paintings, to demonstrate how to make a painting.

Folklore paintings, as one of the traditional cultural and art heritages of Vietnam, have been a typical cultural feature in Vietnamese life since the 17th century.
