Vincent Hložník (1919 – 1997) was among the most significant founders of Slovak modern art. The artist´s last solo exhibition was held in Bratislava in 1993. After a long period of twenty-one years, the Nedbalka Gallery has mounted the artist´s exhibition presenting the selection of his works from the 1940s. The works on display show people driven from home by war and poverty, biblical subjects as well as scenes of a riveting life in the circus. A central motif of his works is the warning against the dangers of war and other tragedies. Hložník´s works are timeless.
