The Desert of Forbidden Art

The Desert of Forbidden Art

The story of Igor Stavisky, art hero, and extraordinary human being, is engaging, epic and a treasure of trove of wonderful art.

I was completely mesmerized by Stavisky's story, an aspiring young artist who traveled to Uzbekistan on an archeology project and ended up compiling a fabulous and rare museum of 40,000 works. Many of the artists represented in this collection were forbidden by Stalin's regime. Not only did Stavisky save this heavenly collection, he found ways to hide it under officials noses and to even receive government funding.

This is an excellent, must see documentary film for art lovers.
