In Slovenia, where the first national art show was held in 1900 in Ljubljana, Ivan Grohar, after first experimenting with other styles, took to painting landscapes that combined precise atmosphere with vibrant and coherent brushwork. It is this union of mood and technique that makes Snow in Skofja Loka so appealing.
