Alexander Dzigurski"California Twilight"
Alexander Dzigurski painted this beautiful oil on canvas seascape in 1960. It is signed lower right and dated 1960. It is copyrighted verso as he did with many of his paintings. Condition is good. Overall size in original wood frame in very good condition is 30 by 42 inches. Artist "Professor Alex Dzigursk; (Serbian, 1911 - 1995) was born of Serbian parents in Stari Becej, Yugoslavia. He received a formal education in art at Belgrade's School of Art and in 1936 graduated from the Academy of Art in Munich, Germany. Upon completion of his studies in Germany, the young artist returned to his native country and embarked on his career in art, devoting himself primarily to portraiture and then to sacred painting. His reputation grew and he was commissioned to decorate the interior of seven churches. He was, however, never allowed to finish his last commission as World War II erupted and Germany invaded his country. After serving in World War II, Dzigurski returned home, but life under Tito's communist regime quickly became unbearable for the artist. He fled to Italy where he remained for several years, painting along the Adriatic and Mediterranean coasts and, in 1949, emigrated with his wife and daughter to the United States. The artist then traveled the United States extensively as well as Canada and Europe, devoting his time to painting ocean views and landscapes. Marine paintings, though, were without a doubt his forte. A New York Times critic once characterized Dzigurski as poet of the sea", and commented that "few marine painters have been able to tell the story of the sea so beautifully. His water is wet, deep and alive". Be it a captivating scene of the California Coast, a majestic view of the Grand Tetons or a panorama of the Rockies, the paintings are pure magic. The artist was unavoidably drawn to the sea, although mountainous landscapes dramatically touched him as well they reminded him of happy days spent as a young artist in the Alps. today, the works of Alexander Dzigurski are found in many prestigious collections, such as those of Nelson Rockefeller, Henry Ford II, and Thomas La Follette, and are on permanent display at the Ford Museum in Detroit.
