The exhibition, opened on May 5, brings together paintings by many celebrated painters, such as Cong Quoc Ha, Le Anh Van, Bui Huu Hung, Hong Viet Dung, and Tran Tuyet Mai, as well as contemporary artists, namely Nguyen Van Cuong, Mai Xuan Oanh, Le Ba Cau, Nguyen Huyen, and Le Tran Hau Anh.

The works on display include 52 paintings which are arranged in two topics. The first group of paintings praises the charming beauty of Hanoi, as well as the life and people in the capital city.

The second group of exhibits focus on the majestic natural beauty of the Northwest mountains and forests and the culture and people in the region.

The event was jointly held by the Committee for Fine Arts Advocacy and Cultural Diplomacy, under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Permanent Mission of Vietnam in Geneva, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Dien Bien Phu Victory and the signing of the Geneva Agreement on Cessation of Hostilities in Vietnam (1954-2024).

This is also the first cultural activity to be organised at the Heritage House No 49 Tran Hung Dao Street in Hoan Kiem District. The house was under renovation from an Indochinese architectural-styled villa to become a cultural exchange centre in Hanoi.

The exhibition will be open to the public until June 10.
