"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 interested in exploring art galleries that showcase Vietnam paintings and wish to ensure the authenticity of your chosen artwork, consider the following steps:

  1. Artist research: Take the time to investigate the artist behind the painting, delving into their distinctive style and artistic techniques.
  2. Provenance inquiry: Request the seller to provide any documentation or records that establish the painting's origin and history.
  3. Signature examination: Look for the artist's signature on the artwork, as it serves as a significant indicator of its genuineness.
  4. Material assessment: Scrutinize the materials used in the painting, ensuring they align with the time period and artistic style associated with Vietnam paintings.
  5. Expert evaluation: Seek the opinion of an art specialist who can carefully examine the artwork and provide professional insight into its authenticity.

  3. Utilization of traditional materials: Artists employ traditional mediums like silk, rice paper, and ink to create their masterpieces, preserving a sense of cultural heritage.
  4. Fusion of realism and abstraction: Vietnam paintings blur the lines between realism and abstraction, offering a unique artistic perspective that transcends strict categorizations.

When exploring art galleries featuring Vietnam paintings, these distinct qualities contribute to the rich artistic tapestry and cultural significance of the artworks on display.


When it comes to Vietnam lacquer paintings showcased in art galleries, artists need to follow specific guidelines to ensure successful creations:

  1. Prioritize a well-ventilated workspace to minimize inhalation of toxic lacquer fumes.
  2. Wear protective gloves to safeguard against skin irritation caused by direct contact with the lacquer.
  3. Apply a high-quality primer as a foundation to enhance lacquer adhesion to the painting's surface.
  4. Layer the lacquer in thin coats, allowing ample drying time between each layer to prevent excessive thickness and subsequent cracking.
  5. Opt for top-notch brushes designed for lacquer application, maintaining their cleanliness and effectiveness.
  6. Approach the artwork with patience and precision, working diligently to achieve desired results.
  7. Allow the lacquer to fully dry before handling or exhibiting the finished painting in art galleries.
