This year marks the 140th anniversary of the birth of Petar Morozov, a famous Bulgarian painter and graphic artist who introduced to our country one of the graphic techniques - color aquatint.

A passionate lover of antiquities, the artist devotes a large part of his work to historical events, to views from majestic corners of Bulgaria, to monasteries and churches, old streets and houses, bridges and markets, some of which are owned by the National History Museum (NIM). .
