The works displayed in Paris introduce French visitors to the history, people, culture and landscape of Vietnam.

In 1970, Pham Trong Chanh left Vietnam for France to study. Under the instruction of Prof. Le Thanh Khoi, he obtained his PhD degree in Educational Sciences.

He has also developed passion for painting, sculpture, and poetry as a way to relieve his nostalgia and express his love for the fatherland.

According to him, the fatherland is an endless inspiration for his paintings. His artworks vividly feature a range of topics from Vietnamese fairy tales and folklore stories to the daily life, beautiful landscapes, and friendly people in Vietnam.

The exhibition is expected to help French people have a closer look into the history and culture of Vietnam.

The exhibition will last until May 28./.
