Art of Vietnam

Category: Contemporary Art

Unit Price: US$75.00

Description: While the coverage of fine art, such as painting is small in this book, it is a sweeping overview of VietNam art, this book covers the progression of art from the foundation of the Au Lac Kingdom three centuries ago to the painters of the Ecole des Beaux Arts of Indochina, created in 1925 in Hanoi. The book leads us through the ages with many photographs of the country and its art works.
