'Painters in Hanoi is a superbly researched history of art and politics in twentieth-century Vietnam. Nora Taylor recounts how generations of Hanoi's artists have pursued an identity — or have had one thrust upon them — in interrogating the legacies of colonial patronage, in heeding the calls of revolution and the Communist Party, or in becoming clients and collaborators in a global capitalist art market. Making brilliant use of oral history and ethnographic interviews with painters and intellectuals, Taylor has significantly refigured Vietnamese art history around local rather than Western and nationalist preoccupations. This fresh and discerning book is indispensable for our historical understanding of art and modernity in postcolonial Southeast Asia." - Kenneth M. George (quoted from the back cover of the first edition)
