Ivan Meštrović[edit]

Ivan Meštrović -> Ivan Meštrović (August 15, 1883 – January 16, 1962) was a Yugoslavian and Croatian sculptor. --Avala (talk) 13:23, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Due to the fact that he worked during the time of Yugoslavia, yet I have no idea what possessed you to write "Yugoslav-Dalmatian". Hurts to see the word Croatian, does it? --Jesuislafete (talk) 02:27, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
P.S. The word "Yugoslavian" was added on December 11, 2007 by an anonymous user (24.107.238.16) in a clever trick which was not noticed. I have since changed it back to the original. Thanks for the head's up. --Jesuislafete (talk) 02:30, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
I suppose it's not about that word "Croat" hearts, it is more about that he grow up in Dalmatia, which was not a part of Croatian kingdom and that he was one of few most regarded "Yugoslav nationalists". That makes him Dalmatian-Yugoslav sculptor, or just Croatian-Yugoslav, but in no sense simply Croatian.Luzzifer (talk) 12:44, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
