Slovene Impressionists in international arena

The first international presentation of the four impressionists (at the time members of the "Sava" group) took place in 1904 at the art salon Miethke in Vienna, the following one in Trieste in 1909. The Sava group exhibited also in Paris – during the peace treaty in 1919 in the scope of the Yugoslav art exhibition.

The National Gallery of Slovenia featured the exhibition Slovene Impressionists and their Time 1890–1920 in 2008 on the occasion of the Slovenian Presidency of the European Union and the 90th anniversary of the National Gallery of Slovenia. In 2009 the exhibition Polish Painting circa 1900, Impressionism and Symbolism was prepared in cooperation with the Polish National Museum. For the Paris exhibition a new selection of works was done by the curators Sylvain Lecombre, head curator of the Petit Palais, and Barbara Jaki, director of the National Gallery of Slovenia.
