HÀ NỘI – The Old Quarter Culture Exchange Centre is filled with lotus beauty and fragrance, and many lotus paintings are on display.
The exhibition showcases 42 canvas and lacquer paintings by Phạm Thị Thanh Mai, Đặng Đình Ngỡ, Bùi Trọng Dư and Vũ Tuyên.
The lotus is a beautiful symbol in Vietnamese culture. The artists exhibiting praise the lotus, as well as the persona of the Vietnamese people.
Tuyên selected 16 of his most beautiful paintings from among 1,000 he has painted of the lotus. He said President Hồ Chí Minh’s homeland is Sen (Lotus) Village. So celebrating his birthday (May 19) with a lotus exhibition is very appropriate.
The exhibition will run until the end of this month at the Old Quarter Culture Exchange Centre, 50 Đào Duy Từ Street, Hà Nội. VNS
