Google Doodle features Vietnamese modern art icon

Google featured 20th century Vietnamese painter Bui Xuan Phai in a doodle on Sunday to mark his 99th birthday.

Phai (1920-1988) is considered a major contributor to Vietnam’s modern art, and famous for paintings of Hanoi’s Old Quarter and hat tuong, or Vietnamese-Chinese opera, musicians.
