Photographer's Note

Self Portrait of Vlaho Bukovac from retrospective exhibition held last december in the Gallery of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts.

Vlaho Bukovac (4 July 1855 – 23 April 1922) was an Croatian painter and academic. His life and work were eclectic, for the artist pursued his career in a variety of locales and his style changed greatly over the course of that career. He is probably best known for his 1887 nude Une fleur (A Flower), which he created during his French period and which received attention in various reviews and publications during his lifetime. Bukovac was the court painter for Obrenović dynasty, Karađorđević dynasty and Petrović-Njegoš dynasty. In Zagreb, he is probably best known as the painter of the 1895 theatre curtain in the Croatian National Theatre. Bukovac was a member of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts and Czech Academy of Sciences.
