Varna City Art Gallery was founded between 1947 and 1950 on the initiative of the artists of Varna. The gallery was given the name of Boris Georgiev with a special order issued by Varna Municipal Council in 1999. The collection that it owns comprises varied kinds of art – painting, sculpture and graphics. It has also been supplemented with further additions of photography, posters, installations, non-conventional art forms and video art. Thus in the public awareness, the gallery stands out as a centre for presentation and preservation of artefacts of our art culture reflecting the trends and processes that have evolved in Varna. The collection in itself allows parallels between the general and specific features of the national and local art processes. That in particular compliments and enriches the image and notion of the Bulgarian contemporary art with its distinct features and achievements. By publishing all artworks of its graphic art collection in a catalogue, Varna City Art Gallery Boris Georgiev makes those available to the wider public to view, analyse, make comparisons and parallels between the historic and contemporary processes in art. It reveals the development of the museum, its traditions, priorities and cultural policies
