THE CENTENNIAL SINCE THE DEATH OF PAINTER FERDO QUIQUEREZ

He lives modestly as an art teacher and his scarce incomes force him to paint in Marija Bistrica with hardly any success. The Quiquerez at his best - his landscapes, vistas, portraits, self-portrait - anticipated the dawn of the new age.

Motif: the self-portrait of Ferdo Quiquerez. Born in Buda in 1845, Ferdo Quiquerez began to learn at the Zagreb school of the Hungarian German Muecke who after he had closed his workshop in Osijek, then the strongest centre of the artistic life in Croatia - arrived to the artistic metropolis of the future - Zagreb. Quiquerez adhered to the national historic themes, his canvas "The Croats Arrive to the Blue Seaside" (1869) was noticed. He got the Munich grant and studied at the school of Leopold Raab. After he finished his study in Germany and Italy, he traveled to Montenegro (1875 - 76) as the court painter of the Montenegrin army on its expedition against the Turks. The war theme will still prevail on his return to Zagreb when Quiquerez paints upon commission the themes from the national history (Crowing of the King Zvonimir, The Death of Matija Gubec). The oleographic technique made the large-scale reproductions possible. On his Slavonian tour Quiquerez sketches the landscapes almost similar to Corot’s freshness and clear colour, ancient cities...Nevertheless, he goes on painting his historical pictures which are highly popular and makes his living in this way. He lives modestly as an art teacher and his scarce incomes force him to paint in Marija Bistrica with hardly any success. He died in Zagreb Jan. 12, 1893. The Quiquerez at his best - his landscapes, vistas, portraits, self-portrait - anticipated the dawn of the new age where the foundations of Quiquerez’s painting are more than a milestone. The stamp was printed in sheets of 20 pieces. HPT put on sale the commemorative envelope of the first day of issue (FDC), and a commemorative sheet, too.
