Masterpieces of Bulgarian ecclesiastical art

Engineering Building, Lavrushinsky Lane, 12, 3rd floor
june 29 september 02

The exhibition will present unique pieces of icon-painting, embroidery, crafts, manuscript books, including the famous Boiany Book of Psalms of the second half of the 13th century.

For the first time ever, Moscow will see the gold-and-silver miter of Joasaph, Archbishop of Ohrid. Forty-seven monuments will represent the biggest landmarks in the history of Bulgarian art and special features of national icon-painting of the Balkan Renaissance period. Many monuments are linked to the most important events of Bulgarian history. Some works still have ktitors’ (former owners’) inscriptions bearing the names of the people who commissioned them and the time of the monument creation. 

An illustrated catalog has been prepared for the exhibition.

The project had support from Vitaly L. Maschitsky.
