Nukus is the capital of the autonomous Karakalpakstan Republic of Uzbekistan. The Savitsky Karakalpakstan Art Museum at Nukus is noted for its collection of modern Russian and Uzbek art from 1918-1935. Some 85,000 pieces of art were brought here in Soviet time by renegade artist and ethnographer Igor Savitsky. Many of the early 20th-century Russian paintings, which did not conform to Soviet Realism, were banned by Moscow, but found protection in these isolated backwaters.
