Hic procul a curis/This is far from the cares. Art works salvaged from the fire-damaged Zalog Mansion

Exhibition Catalogue

By showcasing traces of the former splendour of Zalog Mansion, exhibition presented the building’s Baroque renovation undertaken by Count Orfeo Strassoldo and carried out by renowned artists of that time, including the fresco painter Franc Jelovšek (1725), the sculptor Angelo Putti (c. 1712) and the architect Carlo Martinuzzi (1709–1713). Together they created one of the most beautiful secular Baroque total works of art in what is today Slovenia.

Originally constructed as a Renaissance building, Zalog Mansion was turned into a Baroque total work of art by Count Orfeo Strassoldo who, to this end, hired the architect Carlo Martinuzzi, the sculptor Angelo Putti and the painter Franc Jelovšek.
