Product Description

Approx. Size: 11 in. x 17 in.

Ivan Generalic is considered by many to be the greatest Croatian naïve painter, as well as one of the greatest painters of the 20th Century. Born in Hlebine, a village in the Croatian region of Podravina in 1914, Ivan Generalic sketched and painted from the time he was a small boy. Wed to his paint brush throughout his life, Generalic's explanation for why he painted was this, "Ask me why I live."Ivan Generalic painted scenes of every day life from his village. His paintings allow us to see village life from an insider's point of view. Village festivals, animals and livestock, market-days, holiday celebrations, autumn harvests, growing grapes and making wine... all became central themes in Generalic paintings. His use of color augmented his skill as an artist, turning ordinary routines of village life into extraordinary paintings.Ivan Generalic is the first painter in a long line of naïve artists from the village of Hlebine. His style, form, and content have provided the inspiration, direction, and impetus for many other heralded artists who have emerged from the Hlebine School.
