The National Gallery of Slovenia is commemorating its 100th anniversary with an exhibition of life and work of Ivana Kobilca, one of the most famous Slovenian artists of all time.

The formation of Ivana Kobilca as a painter took place in the last two decades of the 19th century, when realism in Europe became acceptable for the growing middle class which, through politics and ideology, controlled the entire art production. She spent most of her adult life in foreign capitals: after Vienna she studied in Munich, lived in Paris, Sarajevo and Berlin, from where she returned to Ljubljana only at the onset of the First World War. During her turbulent stay in Paris and the almost idyllic years in Sarajevo, she also painted outdoors, and later in Berlin and Ljubljana dedicated herself to still lifes.
