Ivan Meštrović was one of the most important sculptors of the first third of 20th century. He is renowned as possibly the greatest sculptor of religious subject matter since the Renaissance, the first living person to have a one man show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and London’s Victoria & Albert Museum (check my entry about the latter here. )

An exhibition of his works has been opened this week in the Zadar’s City Lodge. It was organized on the occasion of the 130th birth anniversary of  Meštrović. Here are some of the works on display:
