Unlike each other, relying on the artistic language of their predecessors, they were able to open up the figurative language of national culture in a new way. Having received an academic education in art universities in Moscow and St. Petersburg, being heirs and continuers of the traditions of artistic dynasties, all the masters, however, managed to find a recognizable, individual style in art.

K.L. Khetagurova Batr Kalmanov. Like his father, Alan Batrovich developed an independent artistic language based on the national traditions of Ossetian art.
A.B. Kalman works mainly in chamber genres. An important place in the artist’s work is occupied by such landscapes as “Autumn in the Kurtatinsky Gorge”, “Armenian Church” and others. It is in them that the artist’s mature style is manifested - the ability, through the visible specifics of the image, the accuracy of the detail to rise to generalizing, symbolic meanings. In 2004, the urban landscape "Evening. Ossetian Church "was awarded the first prize at the Republican contest" The Acquisition of the City. "
Of particular importance to the master are paintings and memorial plastic dedicated to the Beslan tragedy.

Along with her brother A. Kalmanov, Madina Batrovna is a prominent representative of the modern Ossetian school of painting. In her work one can feel the influence of both national traditions and Western European visual art of the 20th century, which is expressed in experiments with form and color.
