VKG art collectionSocial responsibility
VKG is convinced about necessity and beauty of oil shale industry.
Its development and modifications over time are reflected best of all by paintings making part of the private collection of VKG or owned by the Oil Shale Museum.
The importance of the shale oil industry to the Republic of Estonia was highlighted by its depiction on banknotes.
In 1930, one of the best-known Estonian artists, Günther Reindorff, designed a 100kroon note featuring a working blacksmith against the background of the oil factory located at Kohtla-Järve.
