On the 300th anniversary of Bergant's birth, the National Gallery presents his most representative works.

The painter Fortunat Bergant is one of the main representatives of Slovene Baroque painting. 

In comparison to other Slovene Baroque painters, Bergant developed the most idiosyncratic and relatively easily recognizable painting style. Characteristic facial type and folds with sharp, white-lit ridges and wide surfaces are something we find in all of his works.
