Bulgarian-born painter Nikolay Mikhaylov moved to Berlin in 1911. The artist then rapidly won a great reputation as one of the most sought after portraitists by high society persons in Germany and the United States. He painted politicians, royalties, celebrities and movie stars, including Kaiser Wilhelm II, Paul von Hindenburg, Gustav Stresemann and Anna May-Wong. Mikhaylov studied in München and Paris, married his German student Ida Mugler and became a professor at the Academy of Painting in Sofia before he moved to Berlin.
