  • Ivan Generalic Ivan Generalic is considered by many to be the greatest Croatian naïve painter, as well as one of the greatest painters of the 20th Century. Born in Hlebine, a village in the Croatian region of Podravina in 1914, Ivan Generalic sketched and painted from the time he was a small boy. Wed to his paint brush throughout his life, Generalic's explanation for why he painted was this, "Ask me why I live."Ivan Generalic painted scenes of every day life from his village. His paintings allow us to see village life from an insider's point of view. Village festivals, animals and livestock, market-days, holiday celebrations, autumn harvests, growing grapes and making wine... all became central themes in Generalic paintings. His use of color augmented his skill as an artist, turning ordinary routines of village life into extraordinary paintings.Ivan Generalic is the first painter in a long line of naïve artists from the village of Hlebine. His style, form, and content have provided the inspiration, direction, and impetus for many other heralded artists who have emerged from the Hlebine School.

  • (Hlebine,December 21, 1914 – November 27, 1992) Croatian painter. A farmer by occupation, his artistic talent was discovered in 1930 by Krsto Hegedusic. He became the most celebrated Yugoslav naive painter and the central figure of a group of naive painters known as the HLEBINE SCHOOL. In the 1930s the simple and expressive folk style and the clear colours in which he depicted peasant scenes with traditional customs, merry festivals, tragic deaths or arduous peasant work came close to the socially critical aesthetic of the committed artists in the group Zemlja. Yet he did not develop this expression of childlike simplicity by drawing on its primary force but by studying painting, focusing particularly on problems of perspective and space and on colour.
  • Ivan Generalić (December 21, 1914 – November 27, 1992) was a Croatian naïve art painter. Generalić was born in Hlebine near Koprivnica. In elementary school, painting lessons were his greatest joy and as a child he used to earn money. He mostly drew with pencil on paper bags and some of these sketches were seen by Krsto Hegedušić, at the time (1930) just a student of the art academy, later a professor. Hegedušić was impressed with Generalić's work and organized Generalić's first public art exhibition, held in 1931 in the Zagreb Art pavilion. Positive critiques and contacts at the time led to a new era of not only Croatian, but also world art as well. After World War II, in 1945 he became a member of ULUH (society of Croatian artists). In 1953 he exhibited in Paris, where he lived and painted for a few months. In 1959 he painted The Deer Wedding - his most valuable work, according to followers of the Croatian naïve art world. Generalić has a large number of followers, beside his colleagues who form the first generation - Franjo Mraz and Mirko Virius. His second generation followers are Franjo Filipović, Dragan Gaži, Josip Generalić, Ivan Večenaj.
  • Ivan Generalic is now heralded as the original driving force behind Yugoslavian naïve or outsider art. He was born in the small town of Hlebine in 1914, where he also attended the local primary school until he was deemed old enough to work as a cowherd and a peasant farmer. Ever since his earliest memory, Generalic would draw with whatever materials he had available, whether it was a freshly painted gate he adorned with chalk, a patch of earth he engraved with a sharp stick or the drawing block and pencil he took to carrying around with him. When the other cowherds would take a break for a nap or a bite to eat, Generalic would retrieve his drawing materials and record the life of peasants without romanticizing the hard work and the apparent exploitation. He claimed that initially his neighbours did not think much of his work because it did not fulfill their notion of what art ‘should’ be. However, since Generalic drew for his own personal fulfilment and not for critcal acclaim, he continued to record his vision of the lives lived around him. Acclaim did follow, although it was first voiced in the more urban centre of Zagreb rather than from the locus of his inspiration. In 1953 Generalic moved with his first wife, Anka Kolarek, to Paris, where he worked and exhibited for two months. Although this move increased his exposure to a variety of art and experiences, and did inform his work, he never lost his own manner of painting and he continued to depict his own ideology and peasant values.
  • When Anka died in 1975, Generalic moved to Sigetec, another village close to Hlebrine, where he married for a second time. He continued to paint and enjoyed offering guidance to younger artists, such as Dragan Gazi, of the same region. In 1992 Generalic died, leaving behind an inspired art movement.
  • was born December 21, 1914 at Hlebine, an unnamed village in the region Podravina in the heart of ancient swamps of Pannonia. As a young man took care of the farm work and in his spare time drawing. In the summer of 1930 Krsto Hegedušić and spent the holidays in Hlebine known academic painter and professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, by chance he met the young peasant Ivan and soon saw his extraordinary talent. In the footsteps of his thesis on the social peasant paintings, using the technique of painting on glass and experiences of the French painters naifs, Krsto Hegedušić gave Ivan Generalic, the first painting lessons. Just one year after the young farmer became a painter extraordinary. At the third exhibition "Earth" (Zemlya) in Zagreb in 1931. In 1936 with his first solo exhibition Ivan confirmed only his genius. Thus was born the Croatian naive art. In 1953, attracted world attention with his solo exhibition in Paris in 1955 in St. Paul and in 1958 the World Exposition in Brussels, where he secured an important place in the world. In 1969 in Bratislava and Zagreb in 1970 in the international forums awarded him the title of world classical art naïf. Ivan Generalic today is considered one of the greatest painters of the naive 20.mo century. Following the example of Generalic began to paint not only the farmers Hlebine, Podravina and Croatia but throughout Europe. It set up the so-called School of Hlebine that defines a style that more than one location. Ivan Generalic held exhibitions around the world, winning awards and accolades, he became a legend already while he was still alive. He died in 1992. His work is an essential part of Croatian and world art.
