Only recently, the painting of Gabrijel Jurkić (1886-1974) has been acclaimed with a comprehensive monograph and a large exhibition, which prompted the study of his contacts with Dubrovnik. A thorough research of private and public collections as well as archival material has revealed a number of his works related to Dubrovnik, which he visited continuously between 1910 and 1953. The fact that Gabrijel’s brother Mirko worked at the Dubrovnik Preparandija (Teaching School) in the period 1919-1931 also spurred the painter’s visits to the city, which resulted in a considerable number of Dubrovnik landscapes and portraits. Indeed, apart from motifs, in the Dubrovnik area Jurkić found many friends and sponsors. Besides the earlier detected friendship with Flora Jakšić, philanthropist and painter with no formal art education, and don Niko Zlovečera, priest of the Gruž Parish, from the 1920s onwards Jurkić socialised with don Kosto Selak, priest in Janjina, and painter Marko Rašica, whom he met in the circle of Flora Jakšić. They had a common patron of the arts―Niko Nardelli, Governor of the Kingdom of Dalmatia―who commissioned religious compositions from both painters with an aim to support and promote the work of young artists.
