Ivan Grohar was a Slovenian artist known as a leading Slovenian Impressionist. Grohar was born in Spodnja Sorica under the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Grohar’s early artistic training included a summer working under the church painter, Matija Bradaška. Grohar attempted to flee military service by relocating to Venice. Unfortunately a lack of funding forced him to return and complete extra service time.
