Since the opening of the École des Beaux-Arts de l'Indochine (Fine Art School of Indochina) by the French colonial administrators in Hanoi in 1925, Vietnam has developed a flourishing fine arts community. However, due to years of war and isolation, Vietnam's remarkable arts - combining Eastern and Western influences - remain little known outside of Southeast Asia. Witness Collection is working with researchers, museums and other institutional and private partners around the world to share Vietnam's unique artistic talents through publications, exhibitions and visual media.
