Ha Thai traditional lacquer art

Traditional lacquer art painted on cultural artifacts in Ha Thai village, Thuong Tin, Hanoi dates back to the 17th century. In the 1930s, the first Vietnamese painters studying at the Indochina College of Fine Arts (now the Vietnam Fine Arts University) sought ways to develop lacquer techniques. Village artisans applied the techniques immediately to refine and perfect their products.
