Summary/Abstract: The study explores the understanding of identity in the works of art of the Revivalartists Nikolai Pavlovich and Georgi Danchov. The two were selected among theartists who worked until the Bulgarian liberation due to their strong affinity for depictingin their works of art the attire of the Bulgarians. With Nikolai Pavlovich, thestriving for looking for specimens reflecting the Bulgarian medieval identity wasexpressed in a visit to the centre of the Slavic community in Odessa in 1860-61.The opposite is true with respect to the works of Georgi Danchov. He “exported”ideas embodying the Bulgarian national identity at the Ethnographic Exhibition ofthe Imperial Society in Moscow in 1867. Georgi Danchov took part in the exhibitiontogether with the prominent Bulgarian photographer Hadji Kavra on the advice of theRussian Vice Consul in Plovdiv, Nayden Gerov. The works of the two artists were notpreserved due to which what is analyzed are the detailed verbal descriptions of thelithographs, drawings and colour photographs that showed the attire and lifestyle in19th century Bulgaria.
