Summary/Abstract: This article examines the few known or unknown, published and unpublished benchmarks for the development of Sirak Skitnik as an artist. In the course of mounting the exhibition occasioned by the 130th anniversary of Sirak Skitnik and compiling the catalogue, Plamen Petrov and I found a lot of imprecise facts gathered over the years. The plastic manner, paintings in exhibitions, acquisitions, reproductions in the press are the reference points of the study. His work is divided into five periods: prior to St Petersburg, while in St Petersburg, an early period in Bulgaria, the early 1920s and his late works. The dating of City (ca. 1909) is grounded, which is a key to the understanding that in his years in St Petersburg Sirak Skitnik painted particular places in particular time not from memory later in Bulgaria. Sirak Skitnik’s paintings occurring in available catalogues, in the annuals of the National Museum, the press reviews covering his two solo exhibitions are named.
