The Palace For Art

The Palace For Art




Genre: paintings
The central focus of this exhibition is the Palace, one of the oldest buildings in the very heart of Sofia, closely related to the history of the city and of Bulgaria. The Palace presents itself with its character as it was on the cusp of the 19th and 20th centuries; it is also appreciated as a physical locus created both by architects and artists and by the people who inhabited it.


The Palace was a place of power and culture, a metaphorical image of the head of state, Prince Alexander I of Battenberg, and of Tsar Ferdinand I. The exposition occupies the spaces where their official life took place and relates the history of the new Bulgarian art at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries.

Artworks on 1st picture: Nikolay Mihaylov, Portrait of Tsar Ferdinand, 1914 & Yanko Atanasov, Maria Luisa, copy of a work by Philip de László
