Moreover, visitors can enjoy other types of visual arts, such as sculptures, embroideries, and carvings, depicting General D. Sukhbaatar.

Art critic O. Sosor: The exhibition “The Eternity of the General D. Sukhbaatar in Visual Arts” is aimed to perpetuate the General who led the People's Revolution of Mongolia in history and to promote his merits to our succeeding generation through visual arts. This exhibition is the rare chance for people to see the valuable works stored in the collection of the National Museum at once.


During the 1940s and 1950s, the People's Revolution was very significant, so General D. Sukhbaatar became an inspiration for many artists to create their masterpieces. But, there are no artworks that had been painted when the General was alive. The collected artworks till today were all painted based on historical facts and his friends’ memories about him. One of the prominent examples is the “Portrait of Sukhbaatar” by People’s Artist U. Ydamsuren.  


The exhibition will take place until February 23.
