The House of Vlaho Bukovac

The House of Vlaho Bukovac is a museum (and, in fact, his actual home for a while) dedicated to this Croatian painter, who was born in Cavtat in 1855. Well-travelled in his early years, he started his art career in Paris, training at the École des Beaux Arts, before exhibiting his works in the city. Upon his return to Zagreb in 1893, he became an important figure in the Croatian art scene in the second half of the 19th century, organising a number of important cultural and art events and working alongside a number of other Croatian young artists. In 1903, went on to become a Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, where he died in 1922. In addition to seeing Bukovac’s work, you will also see the frescoes in the house painted by the artist in his teenage years.
