Kazakh Art

An exhibition of 75 artworks from Kazakhstan opens today at Christie's in London and continues until 8 September. It covers an era of about 80 years. The works have never been seen outside central Asia before. Judging by the brief slide show posted by BBC News (title link) the works are so primitive that they were hardly worth sending all the way from the Kasteev Museum in the Kazakh city of Almaty. Where? Don't ask. Still, the artworks have novelty value if nothing else. Art historians might find them worth viewing.
