Tinca Stegovec (April 8, 1927 – January 14, 2019) was a Slovenian artist, known mostly for her printmaking and painting, and associated with the group of artists internationally known as Ljubljana Graphic School.
Life and work
She is described as "highly figurative artist and a subtle observer of the world around her and interpersonal relations". Critics wrote her works are "deep personal stories, characterized by a deliberate choice of subjects and carefully selected visual means". For health reasons however she abandoned printmaking after 1988 and devoted herself to drawing and painting. A large part of her life was also teaching, traveling, journalism and translating.
Exhibitions and awards
In 1966, she held her first solo exhibition abroad, followed by a busy exhibiting period during which she received the Prešeren Fund Award.
In 1985, her graphic art titled "The Call" ("Klic" in Slovenian), which she created in 1978, received a silver award in Paris.
Stegovec died on January 14, 2019, aged 91.
