The exhibition Quiet Objects, Sonorous Nuances ‘the World of Still Lifes’ by the painter Ivan Krstulović opened in the Josip Račić Studio of the Modern Gallery
Until February 19, the exhibition Quiet Objects, Sonorous Nuances ‘the World of Still Lifes’, featuring works by the Split painter Ivan Krstulović, can be viewed in the Josip Račić Studio of the Modern Gallery. The exhibition comprises a score of representative works by the artist created in the period from 1968 to 2001. In the preface to the catalogue, Academician Tonko Maroević writes: “This not very large exhibition cannot have a monographic character, and does not cover all the components of his working trajectory in terms of motifs or styles, but it does have ambitions to be an anthology. It presents the artist in characteristic works, productions from his mature years, paintings of the most characteristic and typical motifs”.
During the opening of the show, the guests were welcomed by Lada Bošnjak Velagić, senior curator of the Modern Gallery, who also thanked the artist and his family for their trust and assistance, Tonko Maroević for the text in the catalogue and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia and the Zagreb City Office for Education, Culture and Sport for financial support, as well as to Privredna banka Zagreb, the general sponsor of the Modern Gallery. The works on show were introduced to the public by Tonko Maroević, who opened the exhibition, while Laurence Krstulović did not let his mobile phone out of his hand in order to be able on his return home to conjure up to his father the atmosphere of this Zagreb evening.
