A Painting by Tomo Vladimirski
Yesterday’s mail brought a letter and this wonderful card from my dear friend Ana; it shows the work of Tomo Vladimirski (1904-1971) who, according to Wikipedia, is considered to be one of the founders of Macedonian painting. It’s easy to see why; the colors and textures replace light and shadow in a remarkable way. Despite Vladimirski’s status as painter emeritus, however, it’s not easy to find out much more about him. Even Macedonian cultural websites do not mention more than his existence, and the occasional showings of his work. Truly a pity; I would love to see more of it. If it’s not to be posted online, perhaps I can see his work personally some day.
