The East Kazakhstan Regional Museum of Fine Arts named after the Nevzorov Family was opened in December 1985. The director of the museum invited Yu. Nevzorova to exhibit her famous personal collection in Semipalatinsk.
The collection of paintings, which thus ended up in the Semipalatinsk Museum, was collected by three generations of the Nevzorov family. It is more than a hundred years old. The Nevzorov family donated more than 500 works of Russian, Soviet and foreign art to the Semipalatinsk Museum. In 1991, the museum was named after the Nevzorov family. The museum’s exposition presents quite fully the ways of development of Russian art of the late XVIII-early XX century.
