Dubrovnik Art School, founded in 1943, was named after Croatian composer Luka Sorkočević (Dubrovnik, 13 January 1734 - Dubrovnik, 11 September 1789).
Count Luka Sorkočević, (also Luca Sorgo; January 13, 1734 - September 11, 1789) was a composer from the Republic of Ragusa. He was an equal to the best European pre-Classical composers. His music can be described as being half way between the Baroque music and the Classical music, somewhat like Domenico Scarlatti. His music has been preserved, like other Sorkočević family possessions, in the archives of the Dubrovnik Franciscan convent.
