The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism will open an exhibition on Russia at the National History Museum, on November 7, as part of the activities to mark the 100th anniversary of the Great October Revolution of Russia (November 7, 1917 – 2017).
The exhibition will showcase 100 oil and watercolors paintings by painter Tran Quan Ngoc, painted whilst he was studying and working in the Soviet Union (1954-1972). The works record the lives, people and landscapes of different areas of the Soviet Union.
The exhibition aims to highlight the historical values of the Russia October Revolution to the revolutionary movement globally, as well as in Vietnam.
Painter Tran Quan Ngoc graduated from the Lomonosov Moscow State University and the Faculty of Painting and History at the Moscow State V. I. Lenin Pedagogical Institute, now the Moscow State Pedagogical University, in 1967.
He has had eight personal exhibitions, twice in the Soviet Union in 1965 and 1967, while he has also participated in many exhibitions with other artists. His works are in the collection of many painting lovers in Vietnam and other countries such as Russia, the US, France, Sweden and Denmark.
The classical Russian style is demonstrated in the artist’s work from the layout and angle of view, to the light and colour.
