/exhibition/
The icon exhibition at the City Art Gallery in Plovdiv is one of the best specimens from the collections of the gallery and of the Plovdiv Diocese. The collection encompasses the Eastern-Orthodox Christian Art from Plovdiv region and the entire Southern Bulgaria from the end of 15 century to the end of 19 century. The earliest representative works are Jesus Christ, Virgin Hodegetria and SS Constantine and Helena from the church of the same name, dating back to the end of 15 c. – the beginning of 16 c. Of exceptional value are the sixteen-century icons from Nesebar, painted by masters from the post-Byzantine Cretan school. The exhibition presents works by masters such as Hristo Dimitrov and his sons Zahariy Zograf and Dimitar Zograf from the Samokov school, as well as some Tryavna masters and works by Nikola Odrinchanin.

The Icon Hall houses thematic exhibitions on a periodic basis, presenting through the sacred icons different sides of the symbolism of Christian art.
