A total of 138 posters created by Vietnamese painters since 1945 are being showcased at an exhibition that opened in the French capital city of Paris on May 20.
The posters feature the late President Ho Chi Minh, the country’s many traditions, many aspects of life and events in Vietnam’s history that marked milestones in the country’s development process.
Since its opening, the exhibition has drawn a large number of visitors, including those from the Associations of Overseas Vietnamese and Vietnamese Students in France and foreign cultural centres around the city.
Nguyen Dao Toan, Director of the Local Culture Department under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, said the show aims to introduce French and foreign friends to Vietnam’s leading social and production emulation movements since the country’s founding in 1945.
The exhibition, the first of its kind held in Paris, will last until June 10. (VNA)
