Notable Hang Trong paintings are divided into two groups: ornamental paintings and worship paintings. Expressing similar joyful wishes, Hang Trong paintings are created on the same paper with Dong Ho paintings ( another school of traditional paintings ) but in different procedure.Some of gorgeous works are “Four prosperity trees: Pine tree, daisy , bamboo and apricot blossom ”, “ Carp beholding the moon ”, “ Countryside market ”, “ Young ladies ”, etc. to name a few .

The fact that Hang Trong worship paintings blend with the development of Holy Mother Worship has somehow ranked this painting school a distinguished level in Vietnamese folk painting variety. In the end of the 19th century, such worship paintings as“Five tigers”, “The Third Prince”, “ The Forest and Mountain Goddess ” were frequently seen in the holiest places of temples or shrines. Extremely characterized with colors of religion, Hang Trong paintings generate impressive effects in both senses: visuality and emotion.

Nowadays it is regretfully hard to deny a miserable perishability of Hang Trong paintings. Taking the same “ karma ” with other cultural traditions, Hang Trong paintings gradually disappeared in the community. They are now reserved by only museums and ( a few ) collectors. Hang Trong paintings – one of the peaks of folk painting – are becoming a “ stranger ” in the place where was once its motherland!

Being deeply inspired by magnificent creations of predecessors, Toixedich, together with artist – worship painting researcher Phan Ngoc Khue and Vietnam Fine Arts Museum , is dedicating a dear approach to exceptional Hang Trong paintings. Windy Day 12 : “Hang Trong painting – A fragile destiny” is enriched with stories, analysis, guidelines and discussions led by artist Phan Ngoc Khue. This event, hence, may be an initial step for “ newbie ” to explore an invaluable type of Vietnam traditional painting.
