Lecture “The history of Fine Arts of Kyrgyzstan: the beginning” was held yesterday, March 13, 2013, in Bishkek. Being a part of the “Meetings in the museum” project, the lecture gave a chance to citizens to have an excursion to the unique history of Fine Arts of Kyrgyzstan.

Experts of arts and just amateurs came into the cozy walls of the Kyrgyz National Museum of Fine Arts named by Gapar Aytiyev in order to listen to a lecture dedicated to the beginning of Fine Arts in Kyrgyzstan.

Gamal Bokonbayev, a well-known Kyrgyz expert of culture and the director of “Tolon Museum of Modern Art” held an amazing lecture on the beginning of creative way of such famous and outstanding artists as Semyon Chuykov, Gapar Aytiyev, Vladimir Obraztsov, Laszlo Meszaros and many others.

The auditory was full of not only seasoned experts, but also of young students who have a strong desire to elevate and learn new unknown things about the Kyrgyz Fine Arts.

After attending the event, I have learned a lot of amazing facts about a great master Semyon Chuykov, who was the first teacher of the artist Gapar Aytiyev. Chuykov was the initiator and founder of the first national school of Fine Arts in Kyrgyz SSR in the mid-30′s. He was somehow an idol for the budding Kyrgyz artists.

Chuykov, Obraztsov, Aytiyev, Meszaros and Ignatiev were not only talented and ambitious artists, but also they were important parts of the creation of new Kyrgyzstan.  Their works are presented in national and foreign galleries as well.

It will be held on March 27, 2013, in the Kyrgyz National Museum of Fine Arts named by Gapar Aytiyev.
