he stolen picture of Ivan Mrkvička, on which a woman in a traditional costume was painted, was found on a Sofia street and returned to its owner. This was reported in an interview for “24 hours” by the head of the section “Crimes of cultural and historical values” in the National Police Directorate General Angel Papalezov.
In his words, this is one of the many thefts of recent cultural and historical values that have been uncovered.

Apart from the Master, among the stolen works of art, there were also pictures of Dimitar Kirov-Di Kiro.
