On August 29, 2019 from 5 pm in the Art Gallery - Danovo School - Perushtitsa will be opened an exhibition - Donated works from the NDF "13th Century Bulgaria".


The tradition of donations does not have its own chronicle, but invariably goes through the centuries and with the challenges facing the history of our country. Donation "for the benefit of the Bulgarian family" is a lasting feature of our people. It became a nationwide movement in the first half of the 19th century and gave a strong impetus to the National Bulgarian Revival. There is a strong new outburst of generosity in the Bulgarians after the Liberation from Turkish rule when with donated funds are built Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski ”, The Ivan Vazov National Theater, the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the Theological Seminary, many military monuments, etc. In the years of transition, the 13th Century Bulgaria Foundation developed its activities by generating new ideas and projects in an effort to preserve his image as a national donor organization, which supports cultural and educational organizations, supports the publication of newspapers and magazines, encyclopedic series and scientific publications with a contribution to Bulgarian spirituality, science and culture.

Our exhibition consists of works donated to the Historical Museum in Perushtitsa by Bulgarian and foreign artists from the NDF "13th Century Bulgaria". Over 70 works of art worth more than BGN 68,000 were donated to the Museum by the National Donation Fund in 2014, with the assistance of Mr. Gredi Assa, Chairman of the NDF "13th Century Bulgaria" and Mr. Svetlozar Chavdarov, Director of the National Art High School in Plovdiv.

It contains works by artists of the last century who work in various genres, types and techniques of fine arts - from original copies of medieval miniatures and icons, to contemporary painting and graphics. Most of the authors are Bulgarians who have worked outside our country.
