About

Mid Century Oil Portrait of a Dancer By Zikvo Zic C.1959 Original oil on canvas Canvas dimensions 31" wide x 39" high The frame measures 35" wide x 43" high The painting is signed in the lower right corner Good vintage condition Zivko Zic (Croatian/American, 1924-2015) was a native of Yugoslavia. Compelled to leave his country during the Communist invasions, Zic settled in Rome where he simultaneously enrolled at the Scuola di Medicina and La Accademia di Belle Arte. After three years of studies, in 1947, Zic moved to Argentina, where he painted prolifically, having his first solo exhibition in Buenos Aires, in 1955. Though based in Chicago since his immigration to the United States in 1961, Zivko Zic traveled extensively throughout America. Like the 19th century Barbizon painters, Zic was concerned with the overall mood of scenes in nature and capturing the poetry in a subject. Drawing technical inspiration from 19th and early 20th century European plein air painting and American plein air painting of the 20th century, Zic painted with wet thick oil paint. Often referred to as lyrical expressions, his paintings are color notes of rapidly changing light and shadow. He often returned to the same location two or three times at the same hour of the day in an effort to capture the color and quality of a moment.
