Jewish Wedding

Painter Jadranka Munitic - Dubrovnik, Croatia

Here is what the art critic Tonći Šitin wrote about those works:

“In the wake of Dulčić or Baica, the painter creates her intimate atmospheres as an authentic interpretation of the Town, but also of the people living there who, unseen by us, watch us with their eyes of transparent emerald of the sky or sea."

The excellence of the author’s perceptive faculty together with metaphorical connotations and utterly concrete and surprising painting results represents her as an artistically formed personality, speaking “from her” and without a need of imitation. Continuing to these, she produces works with prevailing white and blue colouring, but the motives remain the same. We again encounter Dubrovnik scenes, the fortress of St John, the Old Town’s Harbour and the Clock Tower. This time, the author left space for tonal gradations, with lots of shades in blue fields. The windows of the fortress of St John are set in a rhythmic series, creating thus a pictorial play on the monumental motive of the picture.

The nature of art has been described as “one of the most elusive of the traditional problems of human culture”. It has been defined as a vehicle for the expression or communication of emotions and ideas.Perhaps now you can understand me!
