National Art Gallery

The National Art Gallery is a two-storied building at Segun Bagisha Road.  It is a fine arts gallery and part of Shilpakala Academy in Segunbagicha.  It was originally established as the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in 1974, and is now the National Academy of Fine and Performing Arts.  In 2003 the academy became the sole conservationist and protector of art in 2003 and founded the National Art Gallery.

The gallery exhibits ways of preventing ageing due to environmental factors and artwork from their permanent and temporary collection.  There are rooms for educational purposes, such as lectures about art preservation, and it contains works of art from national artists, such as Zainul Abedin (1914-76), who painted the great famines of the colonial period, and Quamrul Hassan (1921-88), who was a folk artist, famed for important political works, such as a severe rendition of Yahya Khan (1917-80), the 3rd President of Pakistan, who was responsible for genocide in Bangladesh, and another of Hossain Mohammad Ershad (1930-2019), 10th President of Bangladesh and known as a dictator.
