Overview

Drawing upon ethnographic interviews conducted with artists, collectors, and critics, Taylor (Arizona State U.) examines the impact painters have had on intellectual life in Vietnam. She provides an account of the history of modern Vietnamese painting by focusing on certain individual artists who have contributed to the making of artistic communities in Hanoi since 1925. Some of the issues explored include the role of the government in the arts, gender politics in artistic communities, and the influence of tourism on the art market.
