A poster entitled Mùa Xuân Vĩnh Viễn (Eternal Spring) is part of an art exhibition held by the Việt Nam Museum of Fine Arts (VNAM) on the 90th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of Việt Nam (February 3).

  Poster Eternal Spring by Lê Đức Lai




The poster was made by artist Lê Đức Lai in 1976, a year after national unification. The image includes two women holding a peach blossom and ochna flower, symbolising the north and south of the country.

The image of the young women with the spring flowers will inspire visitors to feel "the first spring" of the united country.

Artist Lai was a lecturer at the National University of Civil Engineering's Art Department. He has won numerous awards, including second and third prizes at the national poster festival; second prize at Hà Nội Fine Arts Festival; and the Swedish International Development Co-operation Agency Award at the national fine arts festival.

His seven artworks including paintings and sculptures are in VNAM's collection.

The exhibition is named Eternal Spring to mark the 90th anniversary of the Vietnamese Communist Party, said the museum’s director Nguyễn Anh Minh at the opening ceremony.

"The founding of the Vietnamese Communist Party in the spring of 1930 was a milestone in national development," said Minh.

"The artworks reflect the diverse perspectives and expressions of different generations of artists with a deep affection for the Party and the country."

The exhibition features 59 artworks, including paintings, posters and sculptures, from 54 artists. They were made from various media such as sơn mài (oil lacquer), oil-on canvas, silk, gouache, watercolour and woodcuts.

Paintings Kết Nạp Đảng Trong Tù (Imprisoned patriots admitting new members to the Communist Party) by Nguyễn Đức Nùng; Bất Khuất (Indomitable) by Hứa Tử Hoài and Cuộc Đời Có Đảng (Our Life With the Party) by Lê Hải Sơn show the people's love and respect for the Party.

President Hồ Chí Minh is also portrayed in Luận Cương Đến Với Bác Hồ (Uncle Hồ’s Encounter With Lenin’s Treatise) by Nguyễn Minh Thông, and Việt Nam – Hồ Chí Minh by Nguyễn Nùng.

Glorious milestones in the history of national liberation and the beautiful natural landscapes of important historic sites are also on display.

National construction and development are important themes for the artists, as seen in Phong Cảnh Phố Mỏ (A Mining Town) by Ngô Phương Cúc; Phát Triển Thôn Quê (Rural Development) by Nguyễn Văn Ký and Việc Thường Ngày Ở Bản (Daily Work in the Village) by Nguyễn Lương Tiểu Bạch.

The visitors can also feel the warm sense of springtime in Hà Nội Đón Xuân (Welcoming Spring in Hà Nội); Chợ Hoa Hải Phòng (A Flower Market in Hải Phòng) and Phong Cảnh Ngọc Hà (Ngọc Hà Village) by Trần Trọng Vũ.

"Using a wide variety of techniques and distinctive personal styles, the artists take us on a journey through the ideals that nurtured their faith in our nation’s bright future and shaped the vitality and optimism of their work as key contributors to the shaping of the eternal Springtime," Minh said.

"The organisers take this opportunity to wish all who visit and take pleasure in the works on display our dearest wishes for a new year of peace and happiness to come."

The exhibition is running until February 28 at 66 Nguyễn Thái Học Street. VNS
