Ho Guom in Dang Tin Tuong’s Paintings

“Ngoc Son Temple 3” (Poonah paper, 60 x 80cm).

Ho Guom (or Hoan Kiem Lake) is the subject that painter Dang Tin Tuong has pursued for many years. Using materials of lacquer, acrylic, Chinese ink, water-colours and do (poonah paper ), Tuong res the landscape of Ho Guom with the neighbouring landmarks of Ngoc Son Temple, Tortoise Tower, But Tower (pen-shaped tower), The Huc Bridge and Hoa Phong Tower.

Via his art, viewers have a chance to behold the Lake in the past with the image of century-old trees and a Bombax tree standing in front of Ngoc Son Temple that was once an indispensable part of the Temple but now no longer exist. Sometimes, with only simple sketchy lines, Tuong helps the viewers perceive the beauty and typical features of the Lake.

Thanks to Dang Tin Tuong, people have a chance to see the area around Ho Guom as it once was.
