"Great Way to Spend an Afternoon!!"

Dear Mr. Henry Le,

Nguyen Art gallery really deserves to be in the top 5 Galleries in Hanoi. We have visited a lot of galleries in Hanoi, but Nguyen Art Gallery is the last one. It was very beautiful. The artworks here are very unique, and we really loved it. Especially, we love "Portrait number 29"  by Artist Mai Huy Dung and the story behind as well as the delicacy depicted in the artwork.

Once again, I want to give my appreciation to all of you!


Client 1 of Nguyen Art Gallery

Very Nice Art Gallery

Dear Ms. Sienna,

Sorry for my late reply. We have received the painting that we have seen on the website. It was really beautiful!
Firstly, we quite worried about the shipping as well as the painting's quality. Fortunately, it was fine. The painting was packed carefully and delivered on time. We also received both the sign of the Artist and the owner of the gallery.

We hung it in the middle of the living room. It’s so great and makes our living room cozier. Thuy, my wife said that the painting has brought the soul of Hanoi to USA :))
Once again thank Nguyen Art Gallery for this wonderful picture!
We will come back and buy a son mai painting in near future!

History of Vietnamese Art

Vietnamese painting has a rich and vibrant history that spans over a thousand years. The earliest known Vietnamese paintings were produced during the Dong Son culture, which existed from around 700 BC to AD 100. These paintings depicted daily life scenes, as well as religious and mythological subjects.

During the Ly and Tran dynasties (11th to 14th centuries), Vietnamese painting flourished, with the development of genres such as landscape, portrait, and still life. Buddhist themes also became prominent during this period.

In the 15th century, Chinese influence on Vietnamese painting increased, particularly in the use of ink and brush techniques.

The 18th and 19th centuries saw the development of different schools of painting in Vietnam, including the Hue School, which was known for its use of bold colors and detailed brushwork, and the Hanoi School, which was more influenced by French Impressionism.

In the 20th century, Vietnamese painting continued to evolve, with artists experimenting with different styles and techniques.

If you are looking for an authentic and original painting, there are a few things you can do to ensure that you are getting a genuine piece of art:

  1. Research the artist:  Look up the artist's name and learn about their style and techniques.
  2. Ask for provenance: Ask the seller for any documentation or records that they have that show the painting's provenance.
  3. Look for the artist's signature: Most artists sign their work, and a signature can help to confirm the painting's authenticity.
  4. Inspect the materials: If the materials are consistent with the time period and style of the painting, it is more likely to be an authentic work.
  5. Get an expert opinion: They can examine the painting and give you an opinion on its authenticity.
Where to buy
  1. Use of bright and bold colors.
  2. Focus on nature and landscapes
  3. Use of traditional materials: such as silk, rice paper, ink…
  4. Blurring of lines between realism and abstraction
  5. Expressive and emotional brushwork.

When creating a lacquer painting, there are several rules to keep in mind:

  1. Always work in a well-ventilated area to avoid inhaling toxic fumes from the lacquer.
  2. Wear protective gloves to prevent skin contact with the lacquer, which can cause irritation.
  3. Use a high-quality primer to ensure the lacquer adheres to the surface of your painting.
  4. Apply the lacquer in thin layers, allowing each layer to dry completely before adding the next. This will prevent the lacquer from becoming too thick and cracking.
  5. Use a high-quality brush to apply the lacquer, and clean it thoroughly after each use.
  6. Work slowly and carefully.
  7. Allow the lacquer to dry completely before handling or displaying your painting.

By following these rules, you can create a beautiful and long-lasting lacquer painting.
