An overlooked work of Joseph Straub

Valentina Pavlič, an art historian and a junior researcher at the department of Art Education at Faculty of Education and a PhD student at the Faculty of Arts (both University of Ljubljana), who is collaborating in the TrArS project, published a short article about an overlooked work of Joseph Straub in Bilten SUZD. Stone statue of St John of Nepomuk in the park of Slivnica Mansion has previously not been discussed in art history literature. With stylistic analysis and comparisons with documented works, Pavlič convincingly attributed it to Joseph Straub. She also pointed out the bad condition of the statue, still exposed to the weather conditions. The article can be accessed here.
