"A Golden Day" is a large-scale and important Museum-level landscape painting by renowned Vietnamese artist Hong Viet Dung. In his internationally famed manner, harmony and simplicity are the foundation for the subject and composition, here Dung depicts the path of a river at center framed by lush green trees at its banks. The river reflects the golden color of the sky, making the sight line where water and sky meet indistinguishable. The artist is most well-known for the use of pale and distinctly muted, monochromatic colors as seen here, that elicit calmness and contemplation. Dung is a practicing Buddhist and conveys in his paintings a kind of visual meditation that has made his paintings some of the most internationally collected and sought after, especially his large landscapes. This work has never offered on the secondary market prior to this sale.

Hong Viet Dung was born in 1962 in Hanoi and graduated with a degree in Painting from the Hanoi Industrial College of Fine Art in 1984. Dung has exhibited in several countries: the USSR (1988), Germany (1994), Singapore (1995, 1996, 1999), Japan (1996), Hong Kong (1996, 1998, 2000), Norway (1997), USA (1998, 2001), Australia (1999) and Great Britain (1994, 1998, 2000). He has also participated in the Europ'Art International Art Fair in Geneva, Switzerland. His work is in the collection of the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum.
