Prešeren’s Life In A NEW Cartoon Strip!
The Gorenjska Museum in Kranj is getting ready for the Slovene Cultural Holiday – Prešeren Day, celebrated in Slovenia on February 8th.
Among other activities which they are preparing for this important day, the Gorenjska Museum also published a cartoon strip about Slovenia’s greatest poet France Prešeren (1800 – 1849).
A series of drawings that tell a story about the poet’s life – Prešeren spent his last years in Kranj where he is also buried – were created by museum consultant Magda Zore and academic painter Jože Trobec.
The 52-page cartoon strip is for now available only in Slovene – it can be purchased in the shop of Prešeren’s House in Kranj (price 14,70 eur). However, the museum’s web page states they also send it by post.
From February 5 – May 18 2021 the exhibition on Prešeren’s cartoon strip will be also on view at the Prešeren’s House.
