Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Marko Rašica (Rasica) was born in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on November 13, 1883. He is drawn from childhood vocation as a painter. His first paint job was in 1903. He made sets for the play Equinox, played in the theater of Dubrovnik.  The play did really well, and it attracted public attention to his work. He won a grant from the municipality of Dubrovnik for studying in Vienna.

In autumn 1903, he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, where he studied for four years. At this time, he works showed pleinairiste influence, but his works are often inspired by the morphology and secessionist symbolism. In Vienna, he studied the works of Klimt and the influence of this great secessionist painter will be felt in the works of Rašica for a whole decade. After graduating from the academy in 1907, Rašica lives in Ljubljana, Slovenia, then stays in Munich, returns briefly to his hometown Dubrovnik, then heads to Prague. In 1913 he lived in Paris and learns repoussé and heads to Holland before returning to Dubrovnik in the summer of 1914.\

 From the beginning of 1915, he served in the Austro-Hungarian army, and in 1917, held a great benefit exhibition in Zagreb. During the 20s, he produced works in the spirit of magical realism and Art Deco. He retired in 1932 and lived in Dubrovnik until 1936, when he resumed active life and worked as a professor at the Graduate School of Zagreb. He temporarily lost his sight in 1942, but somehow was cured by surgery and started to paint pen Redis, a technique adapted to the reduced field of vision. After 1945, he moved to the island of Krk and Dubrovnik, where he died on January 26, 1963.
