Zoran Music. The Braglia Collection

Marchth 30 - July 1st, 2017

 

Over sixty works of art of the painter and draughtsman Anton Zoran Music (1909-2005) will be exhibited from March 30th to July 1st, 2017.

Of Slovenian descent, Music attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, embracing in particular the artistic sensibility of Klimt, Schiele, Goya, El Greco and the French impressionist paintings.

The experience of his imprisonment in the concentration camp of Dachau (1944-1945), which later in his life he defines as “this great lesson”, thanks to which he thinks he has “discovered the truth, understood what truth is”, was fundamental in Music’s paintings. Music manages to save only about thirty of the two hundred pencil sketches he had drawn.

Gabriele and Anna Braglia became very fond of Zoran Music towards the end of the eighties because they were deeply struck by the value of the rebirth of the man-painter, expressed through the visual language which contrasts, for example, the gruesome corpses of Dachau to the bucolic Venetian scenery.
