In the 1920s Antoine Ponchin, along with his son, Jos-Henri Ponchi painted the mural of the High School Albert Sarraut in Hanoi, Vietnam. 

Exhibited in Paris in 1927, the present work depicts a beautiful view of the famous Ha Long Bay at the break of dawn. Ponchin stood from the famous "Surprise Cave" to paint a spectacular and colorful perspective of the Vietnam's beloved Ha Long Bay.
