България в образите на Феликс Каниц
Second edition. Language: Bulgarian
Felix Kanitz (1829—1904) was born in Budapest and enrolled in art in the University of Vienna in 1846. He travelled extensively after 1850, visiting Germany, France, Belgium and Italy. He settled in Vienna in 1856 and undertook a journey to the Balkans in 1858, which marked the beginning of his thorough research of the South Slavs. He visited Dalmatia, Herzegovina, Bosnia, Montenegro, Serbia and Bulgaria. The knowledge he gathered being evaluated as particularly important for the period. A good painter and drawer, Kanitz was also the author of a number of black and white drawings related to the life in the Balkans. Kanitz is regarded as one of the first profound ethnographers of the South Slavs. As such, he has earned great respect particularly in modern Bulgaria and Serbia.
