Painted History in Saigon

Beginning Jun. 17 and continuing until Jun. 22, Ho Chi Minh City Museum of Fine Arts welcomes the works of artist Nguyen Cao Thuong in a stunning representation of history in oil, watercolour and drawings. The traveling artist drew inspiration from countries like Cuba, China, Mongolia and Russia to create incredible depictions of life around the world in the not-so-distant past.


The works have remained unpublished for nearly forty years, and were all created between the years of 1957 and 1973. The exhibition marks one of the few times these masterpieces are exhibited to the viewing public.


Curated by the Ho Chi Minh City Museum of Fine Arts and 333Gallery's Tira Vanichtheeranont, the work of Nguyen Cao Thuong opens on Tuesday, Jun. 17 from 6pm, and is available to view until Jun. 22. Ho Chi Minh City Museum of Fine Arts is located at 97A Pho Duc Chinh, Q1
