Monograph about the painter Ivo Dulčić presented in the Diocese of Požega
On August 3, in the Blessed Alojzije Stepinac Room, the Požega Diocese presented a monograph about the Croatian painter Ivo Dulčić. The monograph, which is hard-bound, numbering 640 pages with more than 500 reproductions of Dulčić’s paintings, drawings, signatures and comparative archival material related to the painter’s life, exhibition activity and work in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Germany and Italy, was published jointly by the Požega Diocese, Matica Hrvatska and the Modern Gallery of Zagreb. The author of the monograph, the leading art historian and critic Igor Zidić, has structured the work in ten chapters, each of which can be read as a separate study. Only as a whole, however, will the monograph give a full insight into the real dimensions of the painter’s work and identify the supreme importance of his religious oeuvre for Croatian 20th century painting. On the occasion, the invited guests were addressed by Bishop of Požega Antun Škorčević and Igor Zidić, author of the monograph,and the monograph was presented by Biserka Rauter Plančić, director of the Modern Gallery.
