So I’m watching a preview for a Croatian movie called Sto minuta Slave, or 100 Minutes of Glory, about the life of painter Slava Raškaj. (Her last name’s pronounced something like Rash-key. Her first name also means “glory”, so the title of the film is a pun.)
Raškaj is known as the greatest watercolorist in Croatian art. Deaf since birth, she studied art in Vienna (Croatia was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire at the time) and painted her most famous watercolors in the Botanical Gardens in Zagreb. There are a couple of them in the Modern Art Gallery in Zagreb. Other than this, there is damn little material available about her or her life.
