Schooled at the academy in Vienna and Munich at the time when the Art Nouveau* wave swept across Europe and greatly influenced the European cultural centres, Robert Auer [1873-1952]* is often tied to this particular artistic style.
He gained popularity as a portraitist of the upper city class, having painted more than 150 portraits, and just as many figures and symbolic compositions.

He was the only croatian painter who presented his works at the 1896 Art Nouveau* exhibition in Munich, and his works received special recognition at the presentation of Croatian art at the 1906 World Fair in Paris. Although his artistic expression was later characterized as bourgeois, after the second world war, and his work was largely neglected, the artistic value of this prolific painter is most often recognized by collectors.
This is why the majority of his works that are on display at this exhibition have been borrowed from private collections. Apart from paintings, sketches, and drawings, which visitors will have an opportunity to view, a separate segment of this exhibition features the memorabilia from the family heritage.
Furthermore, a reconstruction of the painter’s atelier, with his original painting implements as well as personal photographs of the models he painted, is also on display.

Robert Auer (Zagabria, 27 novembre 1873 - 8 marzo 1952)* è stato un pittore Croato, esponente della Secessione Viennese e dell'Art Nouveau*.
Robert Auer nasce a Zagabria in una famiglia borghese.
Dopo aver studiato a Vienna ed a Monaco, si afferma nella sua città natale come ritrattista, realizza ben 150 ritratti, ma si rivela anche un abile violinista.
Nel 1896, alla mostra della Secessione di Monaco, è l’unico pittore Croato chiamato ad esporre. Dieci anni dopo, nel 1906, le sue opere saranno particolarmente apprezzate alla Fiera Mondiale di Parigi, nella sezione dedicata appunto all’arte Croata.
