This richly illustrated edition summarizes the conclusions of an international symposium held in Dubrovnik in 2008. The symposium focused on the comparative analysis of four ensembles depicting the Evangelists from the œuvre of Mattia Preti. Two of these ensembles are now in Dubrovnik, one is in Cosenza (Italy) and one is in Sliema (Malta).
Eneolithic, Bronze Age and Medieval settlement
Croatian Conservation Institute, Department for Archaeology carried out the archaeological research in Josipovac Punitovački–Veliko polje I in 2007 and 2008. The site is part of the C5 corridor of the Osijek–Đakovo motorway, and the results are presented in this monograph.
The booklet brings a detailed description of the research and conservation-restoration of wall paintings in the Bajamonti-Dešković Palace in Split. The rich programme of the three salons on the first floor, their luxurious execution and the complexity of compositions are unparalleled in the 19th century painting in Dalmatia, making the palace a monument of exceptional cultural and historic value.
Bartolomeo Vivarini's Renaissance altarpiece depicting the scene of Sacra Conversazione was painted in 1475. It is a significant painting in the context of Venetian Quatrocento. Although not part of its original inventory, the painting now embellishes the church of St. Anthony the Abbot in Veli Lošinj: it has been there for almost two centuries, having been left to the town by a Venetian merchant and patron.
