NDO/VNA - An art exhibition featuring 140 paintings produced by renowned Vietnamese artist Mai Trung Thu will be held at the Ursulines Museum in Macon, France, from June 16 to October 24, the Voice of Vietnam (VOV) reported.
The event is set to showcase many artworks by Mai Trung Thu for the first time ever, including oil paintings on canvas, paintings on silk, photographs, and lithographs, all of which will be available for the public to view.
Mai Trung Thu, also known as Mai Thu, who lived from 1906 to 1980, is a famous painter in Vietnamese contemporary art especially during the early 20th century.
April this year saw his painting Portrait de Mademoiselle Phuong (Portrait of Madame Phuong) fetch a record price of US$3.1 million at Sotheby's Hong Kong Auction, thereby representing the highest price ever paid for a piece of Vietnamese artwork.
The exhibition is running with the theme of Écho d’un Vietnam Reve (Echo of a Dreamed Vietnam), and will open with support from the artist’s daughter Mai Lan Phuong in partnership with the Cernuschi Museum.
