‘Khalkh Gol’ remembered by Mongolian and Russian artists


The Union of Mongolian Artists is presenting the exhibition “Khalkh Gol”, dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the victory of the Khalkh Gol battle in World War II , through April 30. The exhibition includes over 80 paintings and sketches by 60 different artists from Mongolia and Russia.
The Battle of Khalkh Gol took place from May 11 to September 16, 1939, at the Khalkh River in Mongolia. The battle was one of the most decisive battles in the region during World War II and it resulted in the defeat of the Japanese Sixth Army by Soviet and Mongolian soldiers.
The purpose of the exhibition is to demonstrate the history and the tragedy of events surrounding the battle, so the youth can remember the great heroes of that time.
Many of the paintings in the exhibition were created in a realistic fine art style, which gives viewers strong impressions of the scenes from many years ago. There are many paintings that were created in the socialist realism method. Those paintings represent an extraordinary experience of the history of fine arts.
