Gallery visit: Menci Clement Crnčić

One of the nicest things about Zagreb is the multitude of small museums and galleries scattered around the city, especially in Gornji Grad. Recently I visited the gallery showcasing the works of of Menci Clement Crnčić, and it is simply stunning.

Crnčić established himself as a marine artist with a series of paintings of the Istrian peninsula and the Adriatic coast. He was one of the founders of the first private painting school in Zagreb, which grew to become part of the Academy of Fine Arts, Zagreb. He taught there until the end of his life. He became a member of the Yugoslav Academy of Sciences and Arts in 1919, and was the Director of The Strossmayer Gallery of Old Masters from 1920-1928. (Wikipedia)
