Mirko Rački

Rački was born in Novi Marof, and graduated from the Teacher's Academy in Zagreb. He then went to the private art school of Heinrich Strehblow in Vienna, then studied at the Academy in Prague under Vlaho Bukovac and in Vienna under W. Unger. He lived in Munich from 1907 to 1914, then in Rome, Geneva, Zagreb, and finally in Split. Rački's most important collection of work is connected to Dante's The Divine Comedy and he was occupied with these motifs until the end of his life.
Some his works were published in the collector's edition of The Divine Comedy from 1934 in Bergamo. A retrospective exhibition was held in 1970 in Zagreb.
