Vietnam Fine Arts from 20th century up to now
Fine Arts from 1925 to 1945
A new era in Vietnam's fine arts history started with the establishment of the Indochina Fine Arts College. Many painters and sculptors appeared in this period with their forte in different media and themes. Painting on silk, oil painting on canvas, printmaking and lacquer painting developed during this period. Genre paintings and portraits, in a naturalistic, yet lyrical style, romanticized rural life, the new pleasures of the city, and the beauty of women, while documenting both nuance and detail of a life soon to be eclipsed by the struggle for independence. The two major creative tendencies of romanticism and realism shaped the later development of modernism in Vietnamese art.
Fine Arts from 1945 to 1954
Created during nine years of resistance war against the French colonialists, a collection of sketches demonstrates a reorientation in artistic priorities and concepts. The fine arts of this period reflect the nation's struggle. Artists of the day abandoned the previous, romantic style to create vigorous, optimistic revolutionary works. A resistance revolution art was formed and developed which has continued to the present.
Fine Arts from 1954 up to now
The paintings of this period are exhibited according to the media: lacquer, silk, oil and sculpture.
The lacquer collection, including hundreds of paintings, represents different periods and several generations of artists who contributed to develop new techniques and styles of an art both ancient and modern. This is one of the collections most treasured by the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum.
The silk paintings collection of the Museum represent an art that is distinctively Vietnamese. It has a subtle, minimalist, yet profound expression that particularly characterizes the Eastern aesthetic.
The Museum's collection of oil paintings introduces artworks created after 1954. The works express pervasive emotions of the Vietnamese people during the American war, the aftermath and the building of a new life. Works produced in the 1980s have a new symbolic vocabulary of color and composition, using bright and expressive color. The artworks of the 1990s reveal an explosion of trends in modern art: realism, impressionism, expressionism, abstract art, surrealism and other styles.
