About

The Slovenian-Italian painter and graphic artist Zoran Music was born on 12 February 1909 in Bukovica near Gorizia in the then Austria-Hungary. He deals primarily with the barren landscapes of Dalmatia and Italy and, in contrast, with urban scenes from Paris and Venice. In addition there are portraits and everyday scenes of farmers and fishermen. Particularly noteworthy is the "Nous ne sommes pas les derniers" series, which comes from the processing of his impressions from the Dachau concentration camp. In 1915, while his father was in active service on the Galician front, the family was evacuated to Styria. From 1920 to 1930 his father taught in Völkermarkt and Zoran Music attended grammar school there. He completed his school years in Maribor. From 1930 to 1935 Music was registered at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb where he studied with Ljuba Babic, a student of Stuck. Music spent his holidays drawing in Croatia, but also made regular visits to Vienna. In 1935 he completed his studies and travelled to Madrid where he concentrated on the work of El Greco and Goya in the Prado. From 1941 to 1942 Music was in Gorizia again and was commissioned to paint frescos in various churches in the area. After his first successes in exhibitions he was arrested in 1944 by the Gestapo for alleged contacts with the resistance and deported to Dachau. The camp was liberated by the Americans in 1945 and Music returned to his family seriously ill. After his return the artist could not return to Yugoslavia until 1956. Therefore he went to Venice, tried a new beginning with small vedutas, ships and portraits - especially of his newly wed wife Ida. Horses, archetypes of art since cave painting, followed with their riders and umbrellas in delicately hinted hazy areas, and the hills of Dalmatia, Tuscany and Umbria also seem like memories, have something of Arcadian echoes, and yet the drought of the landscape and of the plants is always associated with matter crumbling into dust. Many landscape archetypes that combine to form ornaments have to do with the archaic art of the Minoans in Crete, i.e. a meta-painting of two memories. In 1949 he married Ida Cadorin-Barbarigo. In the years 1950/51 he was given many awards including the special prize from the Biennale in Venice. A contract with the Galerie de France in 1952 gave him the opportunity to live and work in Paris, although he kept his studio in Venice. His works became increasingly abstract. From 1956 to 1960 Music worked in Dalmatia and then in Cortina d’Ampezzo, near Bologna, on the Côte d’Azur and in the Dolomites. In the 1980s and 1990s Music lived both in Venice and Paris. Zoran Music was awarded the Gran Premio della grafica at the 1956 Biennale. Music also participated several times in the documenta in Kassel and was awarded the UNESCO prize in 1960. His art has been honored in numerous international exhibitions, including major retrospectives at the Grand Palais in Paris in 1995 or the Leopold Museum in Vienna in 2018. Important collectors like Alix de Rothschild and Mark Tobey acquired his work.
