Entitled Huong Sac Vietnam (Vietnam’s Beauty), the exhibition is the highlight of Vietnamese Culture Day, which aims to introduce Vietnam’s culture to visitors at the National Village Museum.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Ms. Van Duong Thanh expressed her delight that her works were being exhibited at the national museum. The artist also thanked Tran Thanh Cong, Vietnam’s Ambassador to Romania, Dumitru Olaru, former Romanian Ambassador to Vietnam, staff of Vietnam’s Embassy in Romania, the Romania National Museum and Vietnamese students in Romania for their contributions to the exhibition.

Ambassador Tran Thanh Cong congratulated her on the opening of the exhibition and her creativity, which would promote Vietnam’s arts and culture to the world.

Vietnam’s Beauty will be opened until July 2.

Considered among Asia’s talented international female artists, Ms.Thanh grew up in Ha Noi and studied for 12 years at l’Ecole de Beaux Arts, Indochine and at the Academy of Fine Arts. She is now based in Sweden.

Through her distinctive style of using subtle combination of Asian and European heritage, in which Western techniques depict traditional motif of the natural world, women, children and flowers in more than 1,600 paintings, Van Duong Thanh successfully inspires a large number of both domestic and international art lovers. The harmonious composition of vibrant colours, reflection of its emotional value and touches of expressive semi-abstraction make her paintings unique.

She has received, among other awards, the highly regarded "International Excellence of Art of CFMI", USA-France in 1995 and 1997, and "Glory of the Nation" in 2007.
