Description:Van Tho paints many portraits of people that have an impact on him in some way. Considered both a traditional and modern painter, Van Tho uses a very colourful palette and free painting brush strokes. “The painter Van Tho was very well known with his big lacquers and oil paintings of great subjects shown at solemn places. And now again, he presents a new oil paintings exhibition with bright colours, free painting brush trails, delicious masses of colours, however his paintings are full of simplicity and nationality. He works with the top of his force and lives by his carrier and that is really an admirable example of hard work and creation.” Tran Khanh Chuong General Secretary of the Vietnamese Fine-Arts Association Van Tho was born in 1938 and is a member of The Vietnamese Fine-Arts Association. Published in 2002 by Fine Art Publishing House, Vietnam. 95 pages, hard cover, 26.5 x 35 cm. Bilingual – Vietnamese, English.
