Silk Paintings

Modern period

Silk paintings of modern period in Vietnam were taken up by some of the students and French teachers at the EBAI in Hanoi during the 1930s. The earliest representative of the new interest in silk painting was the 1931 Paris exhibition of the silk paintings of Nguyễn Phan Chánh, a student of EBAI who had originally trained in calligraphy, who struggled with French oil techniques, and whom the school director Victor Tardieu encouraged to use traditional media.
