Paintings relive old Hanoi

Female painter Van Duong Thanh has made the old Hanoi revive through her 30 oil paintings that are being exhibited in the capital city’s Melia Hotel.

Paintings relive old hanoiSuch features of the city as the Khue Van Cac – Pavilion of the Constellation of Literature in Van Mieu (Temple of Literature-Vietnam’s first university), and O Quan Chuong – one of the ancient gates into Hanoi, are lively depicted in the paintings although the painter has been living abroad for quite a long time.
The paintings reflect the painter’s “Glimpse of the thousand-year old Thang Long”, where its age-old distinctive architectural buildings and space have partly been maintained.
The two-month exhibition will last until May 16.
