My little dog. Original color silkscreen, unknown year. Edition of 150 signed and numbered impressions on Arches paper.
Branko Bahunek is a Croatian naive artist born in 1935. Unlike the other Croatian artists who were inspired by Croatian country motives, Bahunek made his art basis on an urban life of the city. The woman is the most common theme of his artwork – there is many different women portraits, nudes, but also you can see the spirit of the cities like Zagreb or Dubrovnik. One of his numerous women’s portraits is this one with a lady in a long, red, elegant dress talking to her little dog. The fireplace with a blown out candle and the elegance of her dress make a ceremonial atmosphere.
