Discovering Vietnam’s Natural Splendour Through Art

The Vietnam Fine Arts Museum is showcasing 80 artworks in the exhibition Our Country, showcasing landscape paintings that span from the 1930s to the late 2000s, with each piece showing unique styles, materials and colors.


An exhibition titled “Our Country” is currently taking place in Hanoi to mark the 78th anniversary of the August Revolution and National Day. The exhibition showcases over 80 exceptional landscape paintings created between 1930 and 2007. The paintings, carefully selected from the museum’s modern art collection, were crafted by renowned artists from different generations, including graduates of the Indochina Art School, artists trained in Resistance Art courses, and younger artists.

The exhibition features artists from the Indochinese Art School (1925-1945), such as Luong Xuan Nhi, Nguyen Van Ty, Phan Ke An, and Huynh Van Thuan, as well as artists born during the war of resistance, including Luu Cong Nhan, Duong Ngoc Canh, and Tran Thanh Ngoc. Present-day artists like Do Thi Ninh, Le Van Hai, and Dang Thi Khue are also represented.

Through various styles and perspectives, the exhibition vividly depicts the beauty of different regions in Vietnam. Popular destinations like Ban Gioc Waterfall, Nha Trang, and Phu Quoc are showcased, reflecting the artists’ love for their homeland.

Each artist brings a unique, rich, and diverse image of the country. The exhibition includes outstanding paintings of famous landscapes and destinations, such as Ha Long Bay, Da Lat, Dong Van Plateau, Perfume River, as well as familiar corners like old streets, ponds, mountains, and village roads.

The exhibition covers the entire topographical terrain of Vietnam, from northern mountains to central plains, forests, coastal areas, and islands.

This exhibition marks the first time that the museum has combined conventional display methods with digital technology and cinematography. This innovative approach aims to nurture the love for art and country. By combining projection techniques and cinematography, the exhibition offers a new way for the public to appreciate the artworks, leveraging the advantages of digital technology. This enables the exhibition to transcend limitations of space and time while preserving the authenticity of the original artworks.

“Thanks to technology, there will be more opportunities to promote the value of paintings, especially precious works. National treasures will have greater visibility and accessibility to art lovers both domestically and internationally,” said Director of the Vietnam Fine Art Museum, Nguyen Anh Minh.

The exhibition is open until September 10th at the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum located at 66 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, Hanoi.
