A painting exhibition, themed ‘Viet Nam’s beauties - a modern look’, was held by the Vietnamese Embassy to the Netherlands, at the Viet Nam Arts Centre in The Hague city, on July 10.

The event was held to mark the occasion of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s visit to the Netherlands.

The exhibition features 75 paintings introducing the natural beauty of Viet Nam and it’s people. The exhibits were created by numerous painters from the Viet Nam Fine Arts Association and Viet Nam Fine Arts University, who are joining the ‘Vietnamese Fine Arts and Cultural Diplomacy’ project.

The event attracted the attention of ambassadors, diplomatic missions, Dutch partners, international organisations and art lovers in the Netherlands.

Speaking at the exhibition, Vietnamese Minister Resident Pham Toan Thang affirmed that the cooperation between Viet Nam and the Netherlands has developed across all fields of politics, economy, culture and society.

The exchanges in culture and fine arts between the two countries have been expanded, enhancing the mutual understanding of the traditional cultural identities of the two peoples, as well as significantly contributing to further fostering their deep and sustainable relations in the near future.

The success of the exhibition is expected to offer an opportunity for international friends, particularly Dutch people, to learn more about the land and people of Viet Nam.
