Book: Nguyen Quan

Category: Artists, Individual

Unit Price: US$20.00

Description: Nguyen Quan was the voice of “Doi Moi”. When liberalization started in 1986, concerning art and the market, Quan as an artist, an historian and art critic, pointed out, especially for the younger artists of HaNoi, the road to be taken: in words and work, he articulated what end the new found artistic freedom should serve.

In his mysterious exploration of female flesh, his altar series in poetic praise of nature’s beauty, or his straightforward portraits of family members and friends, he never wavers from his commitment to art as the vehicle of self-expression. An impressive collection of paintings and sculpture from an important artist.

Published in 1994 by Tran Hau Tuan, HCMC, VN. 192 pages, hard cover, 28cm x 28cm. Bilingual – Vietnamese, English.
