One of the scheduled visits on my tour was at the Tashkent Museum of Applied Arts. Honestly, the contents are quite poor and disappointing, on the other hand the building is really a masterpiece of decorations, certainly more interesting the style of the pieces on display. The Museum of Applied Arts was created in 1934 at the base of the exhibition (1927) of the best artistic productions of expert master craftsmen from all over Uzbekistan. With the passing of time, the exhibition has become a permanent exhibition. The structure that welcomed it was also very interesting. This is the beautiful 19th century house that once belonged to the Russian diplomat, collector and connoisseur of art A. Polovzev. Polovzev had his residence decorated in the style of the traditional dwellings of rich Uzbek families.
You can see a watch to a ceiling of a museum room,and in the WS an interior and exterior pics.


Una delle visite programmate nel mio tour era quella al museo della arti aplicate di Tashkent. Sinceramente i contenuti sono abbastanza poveri e deludenti,in compenso l'edificio è davvero un capolavoro di decorazioni,sicuramente più interessante lo stile dei pezzi esposti. Il Museo delle Arti Applicate è stato creato nel 1934 alla base della mostra (1927) delle migliori produzioni artistiche dei maestri artigiani esperti provenienti di tutto l’Uzbekistan. Con il passar del tempo la mostra è diventata un’esposizione permanente. La struttura che la accoglieva era anche molto interessante. Si tratta della bellissima casa del 19 secolo che un tempo apparteneva al diplomatico russo, collezionista e conoscitore d’arte A. Polovzev. Polovzev fece decorare la sua residenza nello stile delle abitazioni tradizionali dei ricchi famiglie uzbeke. Nelle sale si possono vedere esempi deliziosi di suzani ( ricami), recami di fili d’oro della regione di Bukhara, legni intagliati, cesellatura, ceramiche, ecc.

Hello Luciano,
A lovely trio of photos from this interesting museum. You uploaded the most colorful one as the main entry. It is a nice study in color and patterns.

Hello Luciano

A well thought out POV for sure. Sometimes these types of images become the art. Nice POV

Bonjour, cher ami Luciano,
Je suis ébloui par la magnificence des ornements. Quel travail !
j'admire l'aspect artistique également, j'ai l'impression que l'on retrouve certains décors dans les tapis de cette région.

Hello Luciano,
Wow, what a fantastic view up this pillar, which leads are eyes to the amazing patterns and colours of the ceiling. All these decorations are really fantastic. Excellent lighting too and I like the contrast between the light tones of the pillar and the darker colours of the ceiling. Well captured with good sharpness.

Salut Luciano,
Intéressant effet avec ce cadrage et ce pilier qui donne de la perspective à la vue, splendides décorations, on admire les couleurs et les détails de ce plafond bien décoré.

ciao Luciano,
semplicemente non siamo abituati a tanta preponderanza nella decorazione, anche se siamo stati svezzati a barocco. La delicatezza e l'eleganza di (all'apparenza) semplici decorazioni crea effetti mirabolanti, dove la religione vieta l'uso di immagini antropomorfe. Bella immagine, hai colto in pieno lo spirito (si vede che è ottocentesca),
buona giornata,
ciao, Giacomo

Ciao Luciano
i ws ci mostrano ciò che descrivi nella nota, ma questa foto ci fa apprezzare le ricche rifiniture e il lavoro attento degli artigiani/artisti.

Hello Luciano

Impressive repetition of patterns and colours here with good sharpness and excellent saturation and upward pov. The central, lone column literally anchors the shot. Tfs!

Hello Luciano,
This is as heavily decorated as some European Baroque buildings, but I really like this Islamic art much more. To me it is more modest and restrained in spite of the many colours. The patterns and details are incredible and the building seems to be in a very good shape. Maybe it has been restored after the Soviet days. This low angle gives us a superb view of the work of the 19th century masters, and the sharpness and exposure are perfect. The WS photos are also very nice, even though less spectacular.
Best regards,

Bonjour Luciano,

Une scène qui a beaucoup d'attraits. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du plafond et du pilier ou colonne. La lumière fait ressortir la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.


Ciao Luciano, gran bel dettaglio dei favolosi ricami, l'eccezionale nitidezza ci fa apprezzare al meglio questo fantastico capolavoro, magnifici colori e splendida luce, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Ciao Luciano,

On ne peut pas rester insensible à une aussi belle composition.Il y a un énorme travail de visionnement, de réflexion et d'essai pour réussir aussi bien sa composition.



The hall surrounding inside the museum is not poor at all, Luciano, the walls are magnificent art work and masterpiece as you said.
Fine details in an abundance of colors with POV upwards - all attractive and intriguing on the photo.

Hi Luciano,
Quite wonderful interior view full of geometric forms and lots of colour. Your angle directly upwards along this column is just great.

looks like the adornments are painted above timber, looks like porcelain in fact. amazing patters and colors. perfect angle catching the artwork and its precious aspect.

take care


Wow. An image that desires many hours of time to look at to see every intricacy. I thought Dali was a mind problem, but now I see!



Hi Luciano
Extraordinary craftsmanship and a tremendous example of Islamic art, carving and culture in it's glory and what the Moslem world can stand for. Excellent record shot.
Best regards

Ciao Luciano,
ben tornato dal tuo nuovo viaggio,
ho visto tante belle foto che hai fatto su fb
con tanti grandi monumenti .
foto ricca di colori e di particolari belli,
ottima occhiata
cari saluti

Ciao Caro Luciano,

I'm pleased you were able to find something that interested you despite the disappointing exhibition.
This shows beautiful, ethical decorations and I love how you have cropped and composed the photograph, giving a sense of orientation and patterning.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Hi Luciano.
Superb perspective of this colorful column, which we look up to the ceiling where everything is an intricate work of art both in design and in color of this roof.
Impressive also both the entrance to the museum and the room, is wonderful.
Sharpness, lighting, color and magnificent composition; all are perfectly realized factors, in this beautiful image.
Well done. I like it.
Have a nice day. Greetings.

Ciao Luciano,
I keep being impressed with this country and your great reportage. This picture demonstrates quite well and so originally the richness of the details. Everything so elaborate, so well thought through. I like your composition with the pillar which seems to lead the eye to the ceiling. The ceiling being nicely tilted to form repeated motif of an arrow. Great idea and perfect execution.

Fantastic reportage,

Hello Luciano,
Wonderful how there has been worked that much in detail and with so many colours to decorate every square centimeter!
I've seen your workshops too. Amazingly beautiful!
Presented with excellent sharpness and good clarity to enjoy all the details.
Very long ago I have seen some comparable architecture in Iran. Yet I'd like to visit Uzbekistan too.
Best regards, Paul

Bonjour Luciano

Tu n'as pas mal aux vertèbres cervicales? Le pilier multicolore conduit le regard sur les chevrons et la géométrie du plafond tout en fines ciselures.

Ciao Luciano
Compo original, bien vu et réaliser, la perspective du pilier, les décorations sont magnifiques, superbe aussi le cadrage et la netteté comme toujours
Belle journée
Pas forcer sur les couleurs ( 2ème photo) ni contraste, ni saturation, juste mis la dimension, c'est le réglage du Sony, j'aime ainsi :-)

Masterful composition to show this collection of patterns, shapes and colours in the best possible way.

Hello Luciano
Sometimes the architecture of the museum is more impressive than the art that is on showed. The building should exhibit art as good as possible, but this fantastic mosaic art deserves all the attention.
Excellent photographed. Well done
Have a good week, groet Rob

Hello Luciano,
Another topclass capture from Uzbekistan taken with perfect pov and nice pale colors. Very good sharpness nice framing and many good and usefull notes.
TFS and best regards

Ciao Luciano, ottima foto di queste bellissime decorazioni, molto ben composta e catturata in questa immagine interessante, buona nitidezza, luce, colori e qualità. Lavoro molto buono e interessante fatto perfettamente, le mie congratulazioni amico mio. Grazie per aver condiviso questo bellissimo lavoro.

Buona notte e buona settimana.
Cordiali saluti dal sud della Spagna.
