Online painting exhibition features August Revolution victory

An online exhibition held by the Vietnam National Fine Arts Museum is underway to introduce 18 paintings on various materials by 15 individuals and groups of painters, featuring historical events leading to the success of the August Revolution in 1945.

The “Con duong doc lap” (Independence path) exhibition tells a story of Vietnamese people staying united to overcome all difficulties and hardship to gain victory.

It affirms the great significance of the August Revolution as well as devotion of President Ho Chi Minh, along with the historical lessons for the national reform and international integration.

Particularly, many paintings at the event feature President Ho Chi Minh in important moments of the Vietnamese revolution, including “Mua xuan Bac về Pac Bo”  (The Spring that Uncle Ho returns to Pac Bo) by painter Duong Tuan, showing the memories of President Ho Chi Minh’s returning to Cao Bang on January 28, 1941 after more than 30 years of touring the world to seek ways to savage the nation.

The exhibition, which is organised on the occasion of the 76th anniversary of National Day (September 2) and August 1945 Revolution, is available on the Vietnam National Fine Arts Museum’s website at vnfam.vn and fanpage at https://www.facebook.com/baotangmythuat.
