THUA THIEN - HUE (VNS) — French painter Nadja Sacco on Tuesday opened her exhibition in Hue, showing 32 oil paintings as a mark of appreciation towards the local artists and audiences.
Sacco named the exhibition Les apprentissages (Apprentices) as a gesture to thank the artists from Hue that taught her oil painting techniques. The 63-year-old artist has wide-ranging experience working with different art communities in France, Morocco, and Algeria, but, this is the first time she tried oil painting.
Thirty-two paintings displayed at the exhibition are Sacco's work done at local artist Nguyen Duc Huy's workshop in Hue. The paintings are a strong depiction of faces and the art of colouring.
The entry to the exhibition organised at the French Culture Centre at 1 Le Hong Phong, Hue City, is free for public until April 10.
At a flat in the city's Nguyen Truong To, where the late music composer Trinh Cong Son once lived, local artist Dang Mau Triet is displaying 30 oil paintings to commemorate Son's death anniversary.
Triet's works themed Return of Horse Footprint, were inspired by Son popular songs, including Mot Coi Di Ve (A world for the return) and Mot Ngay Dau Thu Nghe Chan ngua ve (Horse footsteps return on an autumn day).
Son, who was a Hue native, is one of the greatest composers in Vietnamese music history. — VNS
