Xem anh phong to
A Vietnamese folk painting seminar was held in Hanoi on January 13 in an effort to preserve this special genre of art.

The event, co-organised by the French Academy of the Far East (EFEO) and the French Development Agency, drew the participation of notable scholars including Association of Vietnamese Historians President Phan Huy Le, EFEO Representative in Vietnam Olivier Tessier, and EFEO Ho Chi Minh City Representative Pascal Bourdeaux.

Participants discussed the origins of folk painting, preserving written material, and ways of promoting Vietnamese folk culture.

They highlighted the Hanoi craft villages and streets renowned for the sophistication of their folk painting and their colour plate printing (Dong Ho) and brush painting (Hang Trong) techniques.

The seminar also encompasses a folk painting exhibition introducing works collected by French authors Maurice Durand and Henri Oger.

The exhibition will run until February 28.
