When I visited the permanent collection was closed.... only a student exhibition, and a temporary retrospective exhibition of a Bulgarian modernist painter who recently died. Absolutely no information available in English. The student work was of 16 -18 year old work, (Students seen sketching around every monument in Sofia).. but was interesting in so far as it seemed to sum up the atmosphere of Sofia.. more many female than male artists, female work mainly optimistic and romantic while the males exhibits seemed harsh and depressing... given that there seemed few unemployed young women , and the well educated ones in the shops and restaurants appeared quite happy, while their male contemporaries did not .. perhaps its a good representation of the mood of the nation. The temporary retrospective was weird in that the painter was clearly very prolific, and produced several themed series of painting, which were not hung together...??? Once again decent lighting would have greatly improved the exhibition.
