Imagerie populaire du Vietnam-triptyque

In some fifteen panels, the exhibition Imagerie populaire du Vietnam-triptyque [Popular imagery of Vietnam-triptych] presents selected extracts from, on the one hand, the two great collections put together during the first half of the 20th century in the northern part of the country (the Henri Oger collection and the Maurice Durand collection), and, on the other, an original illustrated manuscript of the Luc Vân Tiên, the epic poem of the South, preserved at the Academy of Inscriptions and Belles-Lettres. This manuscript is in the process of being digitized and published by the delegation from the South of Vietnam.
