Painters from Debar in the Diocese of Vidin, vol. 1 comes out

Painters from Debar in the Diocese of Vidin, vol. 1 was released.
The book is a result of the work done by the Bulgarian team under The Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Art. Art Schools of Debar and Samokov inter-academic project, an outcome of the collaboration between the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) and the Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts (MASA).
Works by Samokovian icon-painters within the lands of the Republic of Macedonia and of painters from Debar within Bulgaria have been found, recorded and studied. The gathered building blocks allow to scope out the bigger picture of the geography of the two art schools.
