VOLUME IX. COLLECTION OF THE KARAKALPAK STATE ART MUSEUM NAMED AFTER I.V.SAVITSKIY
The book-album “Collection of the State Museum of Arts of the Republic of Karakalpakstan named after I.V. Savitskiy”
(volume IX) from the series “The Cultural Legacy of Uzbekistan in the Art Collections of the World” presents unique samples of material and artistic culture of Ancient Khorezm - terracotta, sculpture, art metal, jewelry, garments and decorations, and, of course, the richest collection of the Turkestan avantgarde, reflecting the development of culture and art in the territory of Uzbekistan in different periods, from ancient times to the present day. Some works of painting, especially the early works of famous artists of Uzbekistan, are represented exclusively in the State Museum of Arts of the Republic of Karakalpakstan and are among the most valuable exhibits that make up Golden Fund of the world.
The publication is intended not only for members of the academic research community, but also for broad domestic
and foreign audiences, and members of the younger generation who are interested in the rich cultural heritage of Uzbekistan. The project, which has no analogue in the world, has been carried out thanks to the favorable conditions created in the years of Independence and to the personal attention of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev to such issues as the careful preservation, enrichment and augmentation of the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of the Uzbek people. Readers of these albums will be able to expand their understanding of the rich culture and art of Uzbekistan, having
become acquainted with the DVD documentary accompanying this album.
The multi-volumed series “The Cultural Legacy of Uzbekistan in the Art Collections of the World” will include the
publication of other books dedicated to the unique objects of Uzbekistan’s historical and cultural legacy.
