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.
