 Historical sources reveal that paper was invented as early as the 3rd century A.D. The first reference to the existence of a paper-making village occurs in the 13th century – Dich Vong village, in the vicinity of the royal capital.

The Collector’s Confessions
 Tran Hau Tuan is one of Vietnam’s leading collector and publisher of several art books.

I was born in Hanoi. A child of a couple of doctors, I grew up in an army hospital living quarter. We led a simple and needy life. All of us children of army men lived in uniformly narrow rooms, listened to the same music broadcast by the Voice of Vietnam, seldom had good books to read and myself never saw an art book.

The First Step to Vietnamese Modern Painting
 The Fine-Arts School, in the first year of its founding, was situated in Dufeur garden, that is to say, within the limits of the present-day school.

Artist and revolution
By Luong Xuan Doan
 The first beautiful pages of Vietnam’s modern fine arts were first written by artists To Ngoc Van, Tran Van Can, Nguyen Phan Chanh and Nguyen Do Cung and later by artists Nguyen Sang, Nguyen Tu Nghiem, Bui Xuan Phai and others, and until today, these are the most beautiful pages of the national revolutionary art.

Nudes in Nguyen Phan Chanh's Silk Paintings
 After the war with the French ended and I returned to Hanoi, I used to visit Nguyen Phan Chanh at his home at 65 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, Hanoi. We would discuss his early achievements in silk painting and he would tell me about recent projects and the trips he had taken to gather material for his work.

The Arts and Crafts of Vietnam Today
 On display at any traditional Vietnamese festival, is a profusion of traditional arts and handicrafts – lacquered carvings and the red and yellow ochre colours in communal houses, embroidery on flags, banners and parasols, the key chains worn by women, gold and silver jewellery around children’s necks, the architecture of pagodas and temples and so on, a spiritual environment in which creativity has always flourished.

The Indochina Arts Partnership
 The Indochina Arts Partnership conducts programs of cultural development and artistic exchange between the United States and the countries of Southeast Asia, with a primary focus on Vietnam.
