“Even if you pave the road with money, I’d trample on it. But to serve art, I’d glean any penny for subsistence”: Nguyen Sang.

Nguyen Sang is one of Vietnam’s most important painters and this book celebrates his work and his influence, with 85 paintings, extensive essays, photos and poetry written by the artist himself.

“In 1984, Sang had his first and only solo exhibition at the Fine Art Museum. It was a hit. Featuring over 140 works, mostly oil and lacquer paintings, collected from many parts of the country, it was an extraordinary event which marked an epoch,” writes Nguyen Quan.

Published in 1996 by the Ca Le Trang, HaNoi, VN. 192 pages, hard cover, 28 cm x 28 cm. Bilingual – Vietnamese, English.
