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

Born in "Venezia Giulia" or Friuli, Tominc was something of a prodigy, and took his first lessons in Gorizia with an artist named Karel Kebar (1764-1810).  In 1803 Tominc went to the Austrian court, and gained the favor of the Archduchess Maria Anne, who sent him to Rome with a warm letter of introduction.  There he worked with D. C. Bazzanti (c. 1742-1818) and exhibited at the Accademia di San Luca, where he won a silver medal in 1814; his Roman period is chiefly remarkable for the beauty of his drafting style, which rivaled that of Ingres.  After brief sojourns in Naples (1818) and Vienna (1819), he settled in the capital of the former Duchy of Carinthia, Ljubljana, where he painted a remarkable series of portraits in the Biedermeier style.  

In 1830 he made his final move to Trieste, where he continued his celebrated portrait style for a full 25 years, before returning to his home province, where he died.
