‘The Blue Mountains of Khuvsgul’

By B.NARANTUYA

Artist B.Natsagdorj is presenting artwork from his new book of paintings, “The Blue Mountains of Khuvsgul” through November 30 at Blue Moon Art Gallery. The exhibition shares all of the paintings selected for his new book.
The book is about the great taiga of Khuvsgul and the lifestyle of the reindeer people, including beautiful paintings and photographs. There has never been a book on the subject written in Mongolian before. Minister of Culture, Sports and Toursim Ts.Oyungerel encouraged and helped with the book’s publication, making it available for a wide audience to learn about Khuvsgul.
Most visitors from abroad imagine Mongolia’s Gobi region and its camels, but Mongolia has a wide range of beautiful landscapes. In the northern part of Khuvsgul is a beautiful mountainous region.
A visitor from Switzerland once said, “My country compared to this land is nothing,” after traveling around Khuvsgul Province.
The author of the book lived in the northern part of Khuvsgul for five years. While living there, he met many reindeer herders and native people. He studied their lifestyle and traditions and discovered beautiful places there. Collecting all his notes, research, and transcripts of his talks with natives, and including what he learned, saw and discovered, he wrote the book.
The book includes 345 paintings and photographs. Some images are in black and white and some of them are in color, which provides varied perspectives on the beauty of the region.
Mongolians are lucky people with a beautiful country.
