ORIGINAL work, not a print as is commonly seen, 13 1/4" by 19", 19" by 25" as framed, signed at lower left in white by the noted Croatian or Yugoslavian naive folk painter JOVAN OBICAN (1918-1986). This is a typical painting by the artist, featuring a number of traditionally dressed male and figures, engaging in native folk dancing. The artist was born in Cannes, France to Yugoslavian parents, and at mid century had become quite an international sensation, selling to tourists and the famous alike, from a studio in Dubrovnik. A prolific artist, his work deals with themes such as tradition, folklore, legend, and Old World customs, in a whimsical naive sometimes child-like style. Birds in his compositions are thought to have specific meanings. The painting is in a thinned acrylic on paper or board. The white laminated frame exhibits very light wear. Framed behind thin Plexi, not glass, for safer shipping.
