Exhibition now finished

This small exhibition marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of Vlaho Bukovac. He is now regarded as Croatia’s leading artist of the late 19th century.

The exhibition featured six paintings by Blaise Bukovac, as he was known in England, including one of LeDoux’s wife Laura from the Walker Art Gallery’s collection and not exhibited for many years. There are also historical photographs of LeDoux’s and Fox’s picture galleries.

The exhibition is in collaboration with the Mercer Art Gallery, Harrogate, and was shown there 14 January - 19 March 2006.

This exhibition has been organised through National Museums Liverpool’s Partners in Art Scheme, an initiative that promotes the exchange of artworks, ideas and exhibits with galleries and museums across the region and beyond. A version of the exhibition was shown at Bonham’s London, from 23 - 29 March 2006.
