HT2301 Vietnam lacquer paintings
Vietnamese lacquer hand painting wall art -The technique of using lacquer for handicrafts and decorative items in the household has a long tradition in Vietnam since it was introduced from China centuries ago. The French introduced Western paintings and techniques in Hanoi in 1925. The traditional lacquer technique, which had earlier been used for handicrafts and decorative household items, was now applied to paintings, creating a new art form. The first lacquer paintings were quite traditional in expressing scenes of natural beauty. Later, lacquer paintings promoted socialist and communist values. Then, young artists have explored and reinvented the old art form, placing it in a new, contemporary context to create highly innovative and interesting paintings.
