Ignjat Job

Born in Dubrovnik, Ignjat Job (1895-1936) was a supporter of the movement for Croatian national self-determination, earning himself a spell in prison by the age of 19. He is best known for his paintings of Mediterranean landscapes inspired by his time in Supetar, in which he said “the beneficial influence of the Brač landscape can be felt, also of the hot sun, blue sea, green branches of olive trees swung by the breath of maestral”. His early works were inspired by art nouveau, later influenced by fauvism and expressionism. The majority of his works are on display at the Dešković Gallery in Bol.
