Mongol zurag (Mongolian: Mонгол зураг, Mongol painting) is a style of painting
in Mongolian art. Developed in the early 20th century, zurag is
characterized by the depiction of secular, nationalist themes in a traditional
mineral-paint–on–cotton medium similar to Tibetan thangka. It is thus
distinguished from both traditional Buddhist fine art and the socialist realism
favored during the Mongolian People's Republic.
