The canvas, measuring 68x51 cm, is part of the main exhibition of the Art Gallery in Kazanlak and is kindly provided for viewing, through RHM-Burgas, to the Burgas cultural community.
Rakovski's remarkable portrait is little known and is worth seeing, as it has not been reproduced in textbooks or hung on walls in state institutions. The image is vivid and influential, faithfully reflecting the awake intellectual personality of the incomparable cauldron. The artist is not known, but it is dated - 1864.
Those who are interested in our unparalleled national hero and keep a patriotic respect for the past, will be curious to come to the museum to learn how the painting was discovered and preserved in the Art Gallery in Kazanlak.
The display of the original portrait of Georgi Rakovski in the Exhibition Hall of the History Museum is the way in which RHM-Burgas is involved in the large-scale national initiative to rethink the personality and work of the famous Bulgarian. The idea is to bring more and more diverse information about the life and devotion of Rakovski, dedicated entirely to one goal - the liberation of Bulgaria from Ottoman rule.
The oil painting with the image of Georgi Rakovski can be viewed from Wednesday, April 14, at the Historical Museum in Burgas, 31 Lermontov Str. The working hours of the museum are from Tuesday to Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 9 am to 2 pm .
