Leon Bure (Album catalog)

ISBN: ISBN 978-9943-357-54-9;
Era: M.M. Malikov;
Country: Uzbekistan;

Leon Bure belonged to a cohort of amazing artists, whose names are associated with the Central Asian avant-garde and the regional art school in general. In 1918, a painting school was opened in Samarkand, where Bure taught for many years, taking direct part in the expansion of that institution to a studio, and then to an art college recognized as the best one in the entire region. In addition, Leon Bure worked in the newspapers of Soviet Uzbekistan; he also was the creator of the first Uzbek and Tajik satirical magazines. Bure’s works are the eyewitness story of his time, truthful and emotional at the same time, told in graphics, caricatures, and delicate watercolors. Most of his artistic heritage was transferred to the Samarkand Museum-Reserve, and the album under publication gives an opportunity to get most fully familiar with the life and works of L.L. Bure.
