“Personal sympathy is the main factor which prompted me to collect, particularly focusing on the works of the artists I was lucky enough to be acquainted with, “ says Tuan. “I quietly came to them and watched them work, living and loving, rejoicing and grieving. I understood them better through their paintings. I am convinced that painting is one of the most valuable spiritual and cultural achievements in Vietnam in the past half-century.”
