Elena Karamihailova

Graduated from Robert College in Istanbul. From 1900 to 1910 she is a student in Munich, then she returns to Bulgaria and begins her work in painting with portraiture. She creates intimate, deeply moving portraits. Certain impressionistic elements can be seen in her mature work. The model of the female Bulgarian peasant holds a special place in her heart and throughout her entire creative life she also lovingly paints flowers.
