Vlaho Bukovac and the ceiling of the theatre in Dubrovnik

During his long stay in Cavtat, from 1898 to 1902, Vlaho Bukovac performed several larger compositions for public and church institutions of his homeland. Among them, the decorative painting Double Coronation in Heaven and Earth on the ceiling of the Dubrovnik theatre stands out. He began the preparatory work for this allegorical presentation of poetry and folk poetry in his studio in Cavtat and continued work on the large canvases in the Dubrovnik municipal hall. Finally, in 1901 he glued them to the ceiling of the theatre himself. The composition still adorns the Marin Držić Theatre. More on this topic was presented at the lecture from our museum pedagogue Maris Stanović, which took place on Thursday, November 17 at 5 pm in House Bukovac.
