discover Azerbaijan´sclassical fine arts
As well as being the home of Azerbaijani classical fine arts, the National Museum of Art also houses masterpieces from Turkey, Iran, Japan, China, Russia and Western Europe. And the museum’s dual buildings themselves are historic monuments dating back to the 19th century. Named after Rustam Mustafayev, an early 20th-century pioneer of theatre decoration, the museum collection chronicles items dating from the 4th millennium BC to the present day. Over 17,000 artworks can be savoured from painted ceramics, copper and bronze engraved wares to ancient carpets, and jewellery. There’s also works of Azerbaijani miniature painters of the 15th – 16th centuries, as well as paintings and sculptures by contemporary artists.
