This article on the artist Ivana Kobilca b. Ljubljana, 1861; d. Ljubljana,

1926 developed from thinking about her painting Slovenija se klanja Ljubljani

Slovenia Bows to Ljubljana, which has hung in the main chamber

of Ljubljana’s Town Hall for over a hundred years. The first negotiations

about the painting took place in 1898, after Kobilca completed a portrait

of the Croatian bishop, arts patron, and famous Slavophile, Josip Juraj

Strossmayer, for the city of Ljubljana, which then decided to finance as

well a large allegorical painting for the Town Hall assembly room.

The work is of exceptional interest as it provides a basis for actively

confronting some of the key questions related to women’s emancipation

and their professionalization in the art field in that period. As a large

and important public commission it tells us of women’s serious entry

into the painting profession and of the province of Carniola’s willingness

to accept Kobilca. In the article, however, we mainly address certain less

favourable aspects connected with the painting. Indeed, on the whole it

was not a successful work, a fact we take as a starting point for thinking

about where women’s artistic careers ran into obstacles and how

they were unable to receive the proper training for painting this sort of

monumental multifigural composition.
