Young lady with lanternby Vietnamese Artist
Phan Linh Bao Hanh
This is a fine example of contemporary figurative art in Asia. The doll-like lady who seems to be static is actually independent and enlightened woman. It is symbolized by the lighted lamp she is holding. The artistic requirements of her art, forces her to give a doll like look to the lady. However, she uses symbols cleverly to surpass that by using symbols.
