TONE KRALJ (Zagorica pri Dobrepolju, 1900 – Ljubljana, 1975), painter, graphic artist and sculptor. Studied in Prague and later in Vienna, Paris, Venice and Rome. His stylistic development runs from Art Nouveau via expressionism and New Objectivity to ‘monumental realism’ in the years after the Second World War. The permanent exhibition includes 88 of his works. Besides family portraits, the prevailing themes are historical scenes of peasant revolts and wars, rural and working-class life and Bible scenes and illustrations. The permanent collection has been on view since 1974 and was redesigned in 2000 and 2013.
