The great anthological exhibition of Slovenian Impressionists opens tonight in Ljubljana

Today, 23 April at 20:00, Minister of Culture Dr Vasko Simoniti will open the exhibition Slovenian Impressionists and their Time 1890–1920 at the National Gallery in Ljubljana.

The exhibition, prepared on the initiative of the Ministry of Culture, marks the current Slovenian Presidency of the European Union Council and the 90th anniversary of the National Gallery, enabling the public to become reacquainted, after quite a few decades, with the widely popular and appreciated originals of the four masters of Impressionism – Jakopič, Jama, Grohar and Sternen – as well as become familiar with or renew their fondness for the numerous well-known contemporaries of Impressionism, such as Anton Ažbe, Ivana Kobilca, Ferdo Vesel, Ivan Vavpotič and many others. At the same time, the exhibition underlines the sculptural, photographic and architectural achievements of the period, when post-earthquake Ljubljana took on its most blossoming Secessionist appearance, when several important monuments grew in the city and when art helped form the image of Slovenians as self-confident Europeans.
