About This Book

This book is an introduction to contemporary Vietnamese painting. In the first part, art historian Shireen Naziree covers the background of contemporary Vietnamese painting and places it in the context of Southeast Asia. There is a section on how lacquer paintings are made, followed by profiles of 15 prominent artists written by the Vietnamese art historian and critic Phan Cam Thuong. Many of the artists started their careers during the mid-1980s, and may thus be labelled the "doi moi generation". Although there had been many talented artists of the older generation, the artists of the doi moi generation were the first to break free from more conventional painting styles.
