 Stjepan Ivanec:

Paintings on Glass and Ink Drawings



Marking Museums Night 2019, the Croatian Museum of Naïve Art is putting on a small, cameo and critical temporary exhibition of pictures by Stjepan Ivanec (born 1953 in Kladare), a well-regarded representative of the Hlebine School and the Croatian Naïve, featuring mainly works owned by the Museum.  The exhibition will be opened on Friday, February 1, 2019, at 1 pm, and from 6 pm to 10 pm the artist will demonstrate for the visitors the technique of painting on glass.


Taking part in the opening address will be Mira Francetić Malčić, director of the Museum and Vladimir Crnković, author of the project.


The exhibition will consist of ten paintings on glass and ink drawings, which will be exhibited in a large, separate room. Ivanec is one of the last great virtuosos of glass painting, which was what made the Hlebine School a phenomenon of its own in not only Croatian but also world terms. The ink drawings on show are a measure of his skill and success in this discipline too.


The exhibition will be open until February 10, 2019.  A bilingual, Croatian and English, catalogue will be issued to accompany the exhibition.
