On the occasion of Paris Gallery Weekend, the Galerie Claude Bernard will present a set of portraits and views of Venice by Zoran Music from the 80s to 90s.
Zoran Music, shown regularly at the gallery since 1984, was born in 1909 in Bukovica, Slovenia. After studying fine arts in Zagreb, his first solo exhibition took place in 1938.
In 1944, he was arrested by the Gestapo and deported to Dachau. He produced there, at the risk of his life, nearly two hundred drawings describing what he saw, that is to say, the indescribable. At the end of this painful experience, he made regular stays in Venice and then moved to Paris in 1952, sharing his time between the two cities.
In 1972, the Museum of Modern Art of the city of Paris organized his first retrospective, then in 1995 the Grand Palais National Galleries held a large exhibition of the artist. He died on May 25, 2005 in Venice at the age of 96.
