Romana Milutin Fabris’ Dubrovnik Rhapsody opens tomorrow in Sponza

Date created: 31.07.2023.

Dubrovnik artist Romana Milutin Fabris set up an exhibition inspired by the uniqueness of the City entitled Dubrovnik Rhapsody in the Sponza Palace atrium, which formally opens tomorrow, 1 August at 9 p.m.

The works that will be exhibited by Milutin Fabris are dedicated to Dubrovnik, a painting motif that marked her entire career, and the entire Dubrovnik Rhapsody simply exudes the spirit of the City and is marked by the artist's specific signature.

The painter tirelessly continues her artistic dialogue with the City, not only with the means of distinctive expression, but also with the inspiration ignited by new creative, crystal-clear challenges. So now – and here – she is painting, making a kind of a hommage to the artists with whom she socialized and spent time during Festival events, sharing the joy of creating art, and she writes their names in a drawing/painting – art critic Andrija Seifried points out about the exhibition.

Contemporary Croatian artist Romana Milutin Fabris was born in 1941 in Dubrovnik. She graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Split and Zagreb under professors Kaštelančić, Tolić and Zuppa, and attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade. She graduated in fine arts from the Internationale Sommerakademia für bildende Knust in Salzburg, where she worked in Oskar Kokoschka’s studio. Since 1962, when she had her first solo exhibition (Sponza Palace), she has held over a hundred solo exhibitions in her homeland and abroad, as well as also participating in prestigious group exhibitions. In addition to painting, she is equally successful in tapestry, and her works can be found in numerous museums, galleries, private collections, and public spaces around the world. One of the artist's own favourite works of art is the large tapestry in the Gradska Kavana Café in Dubrovnik, and her painting which she painted for Pope John Paul II, today exhibited in the Vatican. Milutin Fabris lives and creates her artworks in Dubrovnik.


After the opening, the exhibition is free to be viewed in the Sponza Palace atrium every day until 13 Augus, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
