On 27 February 2020, in the exhibition area of the Museum of Bulgarian Civilization an exhibit “Peoples of Russia” will open. It will present illustrations of costumes used in Russia in the middle of XIX century.
The exhibition consists of the illustrations (copies) reproduced from the book of Gustav Theodor Pauli “Peoples of Russia”, which was issued in honor of the millennium of Russian Empire in St Petersburg in 1862.
Pictures for the book made from life were a color publication in lithography technique. They captured costumes and life of Russian peoples with great precision.
At the end of the event, a master class will be held for the students of Bolgar Children’s Art School. Kids will paint a ceramic jug and decorate it with Russian ornament, with the possibility of keeping a memorable souvenir for themselves.
The exhibition will open at 3 o’clock p.m.
