in detail

After living in Trieste for some years Gorše opened a private drawing school in Ljubljana which was attended by some of today’s established Slovene artists. Before the end of the war he emigrated to Trieste and, in 1952, to America, returning in 1971 to Sveče na Koroškem. Predominant in his extensive oeuvre are expressive portraits, nudes and genre motifs. Works with religious themes occupy a special place. In the course of his creative experimentation he came up with a new technique called orešec (involving a mixture of walnut sawdust and glue). The permanent collection also includes a major donation (1998) by Dr Slavka Bratina from Canada. There are 36 sculptures on display.
