Biography

Croatian sculptor Juraj Škarpa attended the School of Applied Arts in Wien (Vienna) (1913-1914) and the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb (1919-1920). His stone and wooden busts and portraits, as well as his allegorical compositions and grave stones, were initially produced in the spirit of Art Nouveau, but were later directed more to expressionism and critical realism. An essential part of Škarpa’s work was sacral-themed plastics, often carried out by clerical orders.
