The Hanoi Museum has announced that an extraordinary exhibition of folk paintings will open at 5:30 pm on August 18 at its gallery that promises revelatory insight into the world of ethnic art.
The event, held in collaboration with the Hanoi Ceramics Museum, will provide art lovers, history buffs, and culture enthusiasts a fascinating look at paintings and sculptures created when few people had access to institutional learning and were self-taught.

These citizens—our Vietnam forebears—left behind a visual legacy that serves as the foundation of the art world we experience today.

Among the many paintings are 12 by collector Nguyen Thi Thu Hoa; many ancient Buddhism pieces; maps, posters and print art; and glass paintings of churches and temples that will open guests eyes to the expressive power of art.
