Kühar, Franc-Feri


Feri Kühar attended the Technical School (Polytechnic) in Ljubljana. His teacher, France Kralj, academic painter and sculptor, brought the socio-peasant genre to sculpting and the first sculptor from Prekmurje followed his example. Images of peasant women, men and children in wood, terracotta, patinated plaster and, only rarely, in steel are his best works, but he also sculpted portraits and several tombstones. He died of typhus in a German concentration camp Flossenbürg.
