Nikola Petrov (Bulgarian: Никола Петров; 19 August 1881, Vidin- 10 December 1916, Sofia) was a Bulgarian landscape painter and graphic artist; also known for his portrait sketches and watercolors.

Biography


He displayed a talent for drawing while still in elementary school.

In 1903, he joined the Society of Modern Art, a group devoted to promoting currents trends such as Impressionism, Symbolism and Art Nouveau.

He continued to pursue his own styles, however, and spent much of his time painting en plein air; a habit to which he had been introduced by Věšín.

In addition to his paintings, he helped decorate Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, provided drawings for children's magazines and illustrated a book of poems by Pencho Slaveykov.

He died of tuberculosis, aged only thirty-five.
