Rare artworks by renowned Myanmar artists were on display at the "Fragrance of Myanmar" exhibition, which wrapped up last Saturday at Yangon Gallery. On display were 94 paintings by 16 famous artists including Ngwe Kine, Kin Maung (Bank), Wathonn and Kh
"I wanted to stage this exhibition because my collection has grown bigger and bigger and I wanted to show them to my friends. I try to get across the message that Myanmar paintings are among the valuable inheritances of the Myanmar people," said art collector Thein Win who has been collecting the featured paintings over the past 20 years.
Among the paintings on display, 20 were put up for sale while the rest were for display only.
"This is a great opportunity to see the rare artworks by artists who led the Myanmar art movement together," said Maung Maung Hla Myint, chairman of the Myanmar Traditional Artists and Artisans Association.
