Vlaho Bukovac (1855 - 1922)1

(2 votes)


Vlaho Bukovac (Croatian painter, 1855-1922)
The greatest painter that Dubrovnik (and arguably Croatia) has ever produced is unquestionably Vlaho Bukovac, the Cavtat innkeeper’s son who went on to become artistic hot property in Paris, London and Prague. Known both for his perceptive portraits and his grandiose history paintings, Bukovac was also subtly innovative, blending the kind of acutely-observed realism popular in the late nineteenth century with expressive techniques picked up from the French Impressionists and their followers. The best place to get to grips with his work is the Bukovac House in Cavtat, which occupies the lovingly restored stone house in which the painter grew up.
