Now that our knowledge of the world is comprehensive, art too will not remain the same as bequeathed us by the ancient Tracians of National Revival painters.
Modern Bulgarian art conveys the artist's conception of the world, tries to capture his elusive thought and communicate his feelings, making it innovating and expressive. The inspired Madonnas of Vladimir Dimitrov - The Master, the gentle watercolors of K. Shturelkov, the poetry of N.Petrov, the fantastic images of S. Seferov, the blazing colors of G. Genkov, the fine drawings of B. Angelushev, forms of A.Dalchev and V.Rashidov, are only a small part of the national wealth.
You will find galleries in almost all Bulgarian towns and cities - large and small, state-owned and private ones-displaying the achievements of Bulgaria's creative artists.The richest collection are kept in: the National Art Gallery in Sofia which traces the development of Bulgarian art from its classical forms until today's modern visual means; the Sofia City Gallery which popularizes the work of the many different masters of fine art; the Art Gallery of the St. St. Cyril and Methodius Foundation where works from all the world are exibited.
