A new publication - "Introduction in Theoretical-Historical Study of Plastic Arts", authored by Prof. D.Sc. Chavdar Popov - has been recently launched
The edition is published in the Bulgarian language and is funded under the programme for scientific and artistic-creative activities of the National Academy of Art for 2021.
By use of comprehensive historiographic materials and numerous bibliographic sources, the book attempts to back up with arguments and defend the need for studying of plastic arts under the unity of theory and history. In this regard, the necessity to clarify the subject matter of art history emerges as one of the main issues.The text is a consistent exploration of historical dynamics and the changing parameters of both its relative boundaries and internal framework of distinct types, genres and forms.
