From the organizer:
Raquelle Azran Vietnamese Contemporary Fine Art presents the exhibition “Sun Rising over the Mekong: 50 Years of Vietnamese Painting”, which features iconic painters trained at the École des Beaux-Arts de l’Indochine in Hanoi. The school was founded in 1925 by colleagues of Matisse, and later renamed The Vietnam Fine Arts University.
The works by 31 Vietnamese artists offer an intimate glance into the heady, artistic milieu of Vietnam then and now. Participating artists include Nguyen Tu Nghiem (1922 – 2016), Vinh Phoi (1937 – 2017), Hoang Tich Chu (1912 – 2003), Tran Huu Chat (born 1933), and Phung Pham (born 1934).
