Classic Model

This artist is a model for any generation.  Welcome to the front porch of Ivan Mestrovic’s house near Split, Croatia.  He built this classical structure on a gorgeous lot overlooking the Adriatic and figured out how to live there and make it a gallery space as well.  This important artist was born in Croatia and donated this gallery and work to the people of Croatia.  Then this internationally renown artist moved to South Bend, Indiana where he died in 1962.
