Some people think that museums and art galleries should concentrate on the history and art o their own country rather than the works of art of other parts of the world. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

It is said by a number of people that they should pay attention to the artefacts of their own nation in lieu of other countries. I partly agree with
this
point of view. On the one hand, those who spent time studying and searching national
history
and
art
galleries could strengthen a patriotic feeling towards their
country
.
This
is because the more time citizen given to national works of
art
, the better understanding of their culture and heritage they may gain, which in turn leads to an increase in people’s pride in the nation.
For example
, Vietnamese high school students are often assigned historical projects associated with Ho Chi Minh’s life and work, who had made a great contribution to Vietnam’s
history
.
As a result
, not only students could gain a great deal of practical and useful experience, but
also
rise a sense of attachment to their home
country
. If educational institutions emphasized teaching children regarding a
country
’s
history
, they would be more likely to facilitate a national spirit.
On the other hand
, drawing attention to international works of
art
would enrich people’s knowledge globally.
For instance
, the Chinese authorities has been always sending their outstanding students to foreign countries to learn about the
art
galleries and
history
of the host nation, and
then
put those knowledge and experience gained into practice.
Consequently
,
this
would help Chinese citizens broaden their horizons at an international level.
Besides
, they are
also
being able to keep updated as to what is happening around the world which could be beneficial for them in the long term.
Therefore
, their
country
would not be left behind as well as become obsolete. In conclusion, while it is imperative for people to focus on the
history
and works of
art
in the
country
,
nevertheless
I believe that they should not underestimate other countries’ artefacts.
