Vlaho Bucovac (1855 - 1922) was a Croatian portraitist, history painter, and muralist. He was born to Italian parents and studied in Paris under Cabanel, along the way absorbing some of the ideas of the Impressionists.
His portrait of Barun Vranicany (detail) shows solid drawing and a sense of the pointillist’s small touch.
A photo shows his working method. The courtyard setting offers soft and indirect light, perfect for a portrait. The paintbox, mahl stick, and paint rag sit on a chair in front of him. His handheld palette has a single medium cup. He holds about three extra brushes in his left hand.
Another photo shows him working out the full-size drawing for a mural, while referring to a smaller layout.
'Portrait of a Daughter' shows what’s possible with a disciplined limited palette, probably something like black, Indian red, and yellow ochre.
