The Art of Matija Jama

JamaJamaMatija Jama initially supported himself with genre painting for the broader public, and worked as an illustrator and photographer for the Dom in svet newspaper. In the 1920s he spent lots of time in Bled and Volčji Potok, while in the 1930s he found numerous motifs in the Bela krajina region and by the Kolpa River.

At first, his main motifs were genre and civic portraits, then landscapes and city veduta, and subsequently a more internalised form of portrait painting and also a number of late auto-portraits. In a material sense, he completely adopted the world of the optical effects of shimmering, shadows, reflections and mist, and achieved an incredible feeling of airiness and ease in his works.
