Object:Studio portrait of Cabinet / Ministry of Prime Minister Konstantin Stoilov
Description:Full length shot of a group of eight men, seven of them in formal suits, one in military uniform; all with insignia of honour. Six of the men are seated in the first row around a covered table. A man in military uniform and a man in plain city clothes are standing left and right behind a seated man in the center. A painted canvas backdrop is creating the illusion of the scene being set in a lounge.
