310308: Fundacio Caixa Catalunya - Zoran Music

Fundació Caixa Catalunya: Zoran Music Painting as a testimonial Zoran Music, born 1909, grew up in Croatia and Austria during the Habsburg monarchy and spent the majority of his life in Venice, where he died in 2005. He studied art and in 1944, after a stay in Madrid, he was arrested under the accusation of collaborating with the partisans in Trieste and taken to the concentration camp Dachau. Here Music created some of his most dismal and gripping sketches depicting the horrors of the concentration camp; after 1945 he painted wonderfully poetic landscapes and vedute. All of Music’s early works were strongly influenced by the horrors of Dachau. A pasty, nearly Impressionistic style as well as different shades of brown dominate his later oeuvre (as of the 60s). The motives are reduced to the basics, showing a schematic depiction of a person or just the silhouette of a building. In his late work, the figures seem to dissolve and finally they are only sketches, nearly disappearing entirely into a minimal gesture. Music’s late works, which he created in his last 15 years, are - somewhat surprisingly - his strongest. These powerful portraits and figures, which remind of Giacometti's drawings, are – although they come across like an empty space in the background - exceptionally captivating. Just like only the work of an artist remains after his death, Music’s figures only leave their unidentifiable stains on a coarsely cast colored plane.
