Ivan Meštrović and architecture

Sculpture Journal (2016), 25, (2), 235–250.

Abstract

Meštrović’s work in the former Yugoslavia includes some of the finest examples in Europe of the marriage of sculpture and architecture in the first half of the twentieth century. Working with architects, he created some remarkable buildings – several of them mausolea and war memorials. This article comprises a survey of these structures, looking at the Racic mausoleum at Cavtat, his family mausoleum at Otavice, the Njegos mausoleum on Mount Lovcen, Montenegro, and the Monument to the Unknown Hero in Belgrade, as well as the sculptor’s homes and studios in Zagreb and Split and the chapel and cloister he created in Split.
