Object:Studio portrait of Vera Stambolova as a girl
Description:Full length shot of a girl in a light-coloured town dress, holding flowers in her lap. She is sitting on artificial rocks in front of a painted canvas backdrop, which creates the illusion of a rural setting.
Comment:Vera Stambolova (~ 1890 - 1941) was the daughter of Poliksenia and Stefan Stambolov. Stefan Stambolov (1854 - 1895) was a Bulgarian politician, a deputy at the Bulgarian Founding Assembly of 1879, Vice Chairman and later Chairman of the Bulgarian Parliament. In 1886 Stambolov became Regent until the proclamation of Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha as Knyaz of the autonomous Principality of Bulgaria in 1887. He was also Prime Minister for seven years (1887 - 1894). Stambolov was assassinated in July 1895.
