An unprecedented exhibition displaying one of the biggest private collections of Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali is underway until late May at The Fine Arts Museum of Zanabazar. The works are owned by Alexander Shadrin from Russia, businessman, philanthropist, collector and exhibition organiser.

Mr Shadrin, 57, born in the Urals, said the exhibition was brought to Mongolia in honour of Gala Dali, the lifelong inspiration of Salvador Dali. According to his belief, Gala, an ethnic Russian, came from a family with a far-flung ancestor from Mongolia.
'Seeing the remarkable works by the world famous artists with my own eyes feels incredible. I believe the exhibition is a very generous gift to Ulaanbaatar residents, who are ardent for modern arts,' said Bat-Uul Erdene, the Mayor of Ulaanbaatar, who supported the exhibition under the city's campaign 'Hospitable Ulaanbaatar'.
The Fine Arts G. Zanabazar Museum was founded in 1966. The museum is renowned for the works of G. Zanabazar (1635-1724), which include the statues of Sita Tara, the Five Dhayani Buddhas and the Bodhi Stupa.
