Born in Croatia, Maxo Vanka (1889 – 1963) was an internationally recognized artist who was known for his vibrant pictorial sense, drawn from a combination of the Old Masters and the early Moderns, that flowered in numerous paintings, drawings, and sculpture. Thousands have seen his unforgettable Millvale Murals in Pittsburgh, and many were touched through his teaching and painting in Bucks County. This retrospective, the first in America, traced the evolution of his work, and illuminated his unique ‘gift of sympathy.’
