Why this is a
Masterpiece

After he moved to Ulaan Baatar, the artist wanted to create new artworks. In the socialist time, this kind of art was not liked by the authorities. Nevertheless the painting became a masterpiece of Mongolian fine art.

History of the Object
Bold Do graduated in Leningrad at the Repin University. After graduating he went to the West of Mongolia as other artists did, especially to see the family of the old story teller Zodov. They spoke about their journey and Zodov was happy with such stories and shared an old story of the Durvud, Torguud (ethnic groups) migration with them explaining the hard times. He played the Ekil morin khuur without hat and shoes, which was not common when somebody was reciting the old stories. The painter made some sketches of the storyteller.
