5th BSEC Month of Culture
1-30 November 2021
Sculpture - Bulgaria
Vaska Emanouilova was the first woman artist to leave a lasting mark on the Bulgarian sculpture society. She lived between 1905 and 1985, and graduated from the State Academy of Arts. Vaska Emanouilova worked mostly on portraits of famous people of her time, rural people’s lifestyle and the nature, and she liked using bronze, terracotta, and gypsum. Moreover, she loved painting and participated in several art exhibitions. A few months before her death, Emanouilova donated 90 of her works (sculptures, drawings, water colours) to the Sofia City Art Gallery. Today, one of the branches of this gallery is named after her and houses many displays.
If you are in Sofia and would like to learn more, you can visit the Vaska Emanouilova Gallery (free entrance). Otherwise, you can enjoy a virtual tour.
