The professional fine arts of Kazakhstan is a fairly young phenomenon - about 100 years since its formation. In this relatively short time span, in comparison to the history of mankind, numerous magnificent art pieces were created, several generations of talented artists were born, whose artwork became the pride of our museum. Their heritage has become a golden fund of artistic culture which Kazakhstan carefully preserves. It is the culture and history of Kazakhstan. Among those artists, we single out the one that stands apart, the one who was at the very beginning of pictorial art in Kazakhstan. His name is Abilkhan Kasteyev.
