Sežana, Slovenia
1 of 5Lipica

Avgust Černigoj was born in Trieste in 1898. He is one of the leading figures of the Slovenian historical avant-garde. He spent the last five years of his life in Lipica. The collection in the Gallery of August Černigoj in Lipica consists of over 1,400 works of art. About 400 works, currently on display, give an overview of Černigoj’s body of artistic work and represent the themes he explored in his creative period which spans over sixty years. A significant part of his oeuvre is graphic works, ranging from woodcuts, linocuts, copperplates, dry points and aquatints. His motives include figural representations, objects and pure abstract works. He combined various elements and symbols and carved them into small formats. He was faithful to Constructivism and its principles which became his main direction after he completed his studies in the renowned Bauhaus School in Weimar.
