<b>JOŽEF TOMINC, A PAINTER</b><p><b>130th Anniversary of his death</b><p>He was born on 6th July1790 in a Slovenian family from Gorizia. He got his first paintingexperiences as a pupil of Karel Keber. A letter of recommendationsigned by archiuchy Mariana of Austria brought him to Rome in1809. A Domenico Conti painting studio was his home for 8 yearswhere he met his future wife Maria Ricci. He received a bronzemedal at the Rome Academy of St. Lucas. During 1818 and 1855 helived and created, mostly bourgeois portraits in Naples, Gorizia,Vienna, Ljubljana and Trieste. He was known as a skilful painter.He made 25 portraits of Britain sailors in 25 years. In 1855,he returned, famous and rich, to Gorizia - to his brother's estateon Gradišče where he created until his death on 22ndApril 1866. He named himself a &quot;master of portraits&quot;,the then priest wrote on the edge of the Register a &quot;famouspainter&quot;.<br>The work of Tominc consists of religious images, one landscape, individual portraits and adultand children portraits. His portraits are many times enrichedwith the view of the town or country as a background. People onportraits are sometimes represented with objects that indicatetheir profession&#58; a sailor, a banker, a merchant, a doctor andothers. For fun, he painted himself with the paper in hand onthe toilets. He was also tempted by common people, such a Triesteoysterman and the village teacher Zuan Parussola etc. The NationalGallery in Ljubljana has his portraits of countess Cecilia Auesberg, A Lady with camellias, a portrait of his father and others. Hiswork is exhibited in the museum Revoltella in Trieste, in theland museum in Gorizia, some churches and private collectionsin Slovenia, Italy, Austria and Denmark.<br>His style is influencedby the Roman painting from the beginning of the 19th century,Austrian Bidermayer style, Nazarene's patterns and graphic models.Tominc had a big influence on the juvenile creations of paintersMatevž Langus and Mihael Stroj.<p>Family Moscon portrait,1829 <br>oil painting. 110 x 162 cm, <br>signature and date&#58; G. Tominz fece 1829<br>National Gallery in Ljubljana<p>Three ladies in best clothesand jewellery have a cup of coffee on a terrace. Precious chinacups and a tray are reflected on a polished table. There is alandscape with a river on the left side, at the background, onthe right there is a park with cypresses and other trees thatmany times revive Tominc's portraits. A glass pot with gold fishis on the terrace fence. There is an unreasonable window reflectionon this glass pot. It is perceived on the left instead of in themiddle.Three ladies - the older is Marija Anna Barbara baroness Welserheim, Barbara baroness Mosconis standing, the younger is one the granddaughter of the family- represent a so-called group family portrait. On the right sidedown there is a painter's signature&#58; &quot;G. Tominz fece 1829&quot;(Giuseppe Tominz created in 1829).This painting was the property of the family Frolich living in Trieste. National Gallery boughtthis picture in Graz in 1928 as the beautiful creation of theSlovenian painter. A slight influence of Roman classicism couldbe noticed on this picture, especially on the sculpturally shapedfigures and cold colours, and some features of Austrian Bidermayerwith costumes and an idyllic social atmosphere.<p>Ksenija, Rozman, Ph.
