The Dong Ho painting exhibition draws both domestic and international guests and scholars.
The exhibition introduces more than 100 artifacts relating to the woodblock printing craft, including woodblocks, craft tools, and finished prints. Some of the prints on display have been preserved for nearly a century.

Others have been recently restored with consultation by renowned French Indochina researchers. Several of the prints are new creations based on traditional styles by contemporary artists.
An international seminar on preserving and promoting Dong Ho folk paintings was held in Hanoi’s neighboring Bac Ninh province on Friday.
