Hang Trong Paintings

Hang Trong paintings are also printed with black lines to form the basis for the color. However, unlike Dong Ho paintings, they are made by hand. Large sheets of imported paper and brightly colored paints are used for Hang Trong paintings. The content of these paintings are significantly influenced by Chinese drawings. Hang Trong paintings have traditionally served the poorer classes and are made and sold in the capital city.

Among the Vietnamese arts, folk painting is a long standing traditional one. It is highly appreciated by generations to the others and has become an indispensable moral alimentation. Dong Ho as well as Hang Trong painting had set their place deeply in the soul of the people and remained their features unchangeable in spite of the upheavals of the times.
