Motif: The portrait of Ivan Bunić Vučić, poet from Dubrovnik Ivan Bunić Vučić (1592 - 1658) was dedicated to the wordly goods and social life, he wrote verses only in the blessed moments of leisure and spiritual relaxation. He wrote a number of lyrics (in particular the collection "Leisureliness", which was not published and came to the 19th century in manuscripts) which are the outstanding achievement of the gifted connoisseur who subscribes to the full joy of life and advocates the love in favour of momentary worth and death. Save for his lyrical "Leisureliness", evidently aimed at the pleasure of his and of his friends, that satisfied in a happy and versatile mode the highest standards of poetic creation, Bunić wrote the spiritual poetry, too. Bunić won fame as a dramatist, too. There is a verse in his "Pastoral conversations" which recurs in the twentieth century in the lovely chanson of the best French crooner Jacques Brel (Don't Leave Me). An aristocratic landowner, Ivan Bunić Vučić enriched the inherited wealth. The scion of a noble family, he become a member of the Dubrovnik Great council, he was an active magistrate, five times he was elected Duke. He is stil remembered as a Duke of poetry.
