Bulgarian Male Nudes! Who knew?

One of the things I love about doing this blog is the sometimes surprising direction my research takes me.  While expanding my collection of early 20th C. paintings recently, I came across a special show held in Sofia, Bulgaria in 2017 that featured the male nude in Bulgarian art from 1856 to 1944.  It turned out to be quite good, and today will be the first of several series here on that theme. 
The sculpture at center is Satyr by Zheko Spiridonov from 1896.
