Pham Ngoc Lieu left behind thousands of sketches and paintings depicting the war.

HA NOI (VNS) — More than 70 of late war veteran Pham Ngoc Lieu's paintings are on display at Museum of Viet Nam Military History in downtown Ha Noi.

The painter, who passed away a year ago, left behind thousands of sketches and paintings depicting the American War. Some of his works were drawn long after the war.

Noted painter Pham Luc said Lieu stuck to the theme of war because his generation spent their whole youth working for the revolution.

"Many of our friends died during the war," Luc said. "That's why we are often obsessed with images of the war."

The paintings are on display at 28A Dien Bien Phu Street. — VNS
