What is Lacquer Art?

Lacquer Art is a traditional art form of Vietnam, which is a development from the lacquer profession, which is used to cover statues, diaphragms, and furniture to keep its durability and gloss over hundreds of years. In 1925, the Indochina College of Fine Arts was established, and French professors and Vietnamese artisans brought art knowledge from all over the world to teach here. New materials such as eggshells and mothers of pearl were explored and sanding techniques were introduced, from which the lacquer profession developed into the unique Lacquer Art of Vietnam.
