The Art Gallery “Ilia Beshkov”, PlevenCod 2212

Starting with the year 1958, at the initiative of the artists from the city, as a branch of the History Museum – Pleven, is accommodated in a space specially built, the Art gallery “Ilia Beshkov” in 1978, on the blvd. “Skobelev” no. 1.
The permanent exhibit of the Art Gallery “Ilia Beshkov” offers an idea upon the principal stages and tendencies in the Bulgarian art from the end of the 19th century until the years 70 of the 20th century. It was started even in the period of post – liberation, with the names of the pioneers Nikolai Pavlovich, Anton MITOV and Ivan Markvichka, and it is passed through one of the most known masters of the brush: Stefan Ivanov, Orphan Wanderer, Vladimir Dimitrov – the commander, Dechko Uzunov, Vasil Barakovo Bencho Obreshkov, Ilia Petrov, Nenko balcanic, Stoyan Venev, Kiril Țonev Boris Ivanov, Zlatyu Boyadzhiev, Petrov Kiril, Vera Nedkova, Slavka Deneva, Ivan Nenov, Nayden Petkov and it is reached to remarkable names from the Bulgarian contemporary painting, whose enumeration would occupy to much space.
In this refined ensemble there are presented the compositions of the authors whose work represents the new Bulgarian sculptor: Ivan Lazarov, Petar Balabanov, Marko Markov. A special attention is given to the creative patrimony of one of the most known authors from Pleven, the sculptor Angel Spasov (1884 – 1974) whose complete work can only be seen in the Art Gallery “Ilia Beshkov”.
A special attention within the exhibit is dedicated to the owner of the gallery, the great Bulgarian artist Ilia Beshkov (1901 – 1958). The series of bright compositions allows you to see it the most vivid characteristic of its work. The acuity, the improvising genius and the durable thematic relevance of this distinguished master, demonstrates the correctitude of his appreciation as being one of the tips of the plastic Bulgarian culture in the 20th century.
