Pastel, paper

Inv. no. G 423

Mount St. Ursula (Uršlja gora) became Karel Pečko’s central motif in the 1970s. At that time, pastel dominated in his creative work, a technique that allowed him to create quickly, with gentle transitions and shading. Pečko transposed the stylized image of Mount St. Ursula to other techniques: stained glass windows, mosaics, works on canvas. Two large tapestries with the motif of Mount St. Ursula were also created for larger environments. In the 1980s, they were manufactured by the factory Dekorativna from Ljubljana according to his proposal. In the wedding hall of the Rotenturn manor, his tapestry with the monumental image of Mount St. Ursula still contributes to a harmonious environment for festive events. Over the years, the images of Mount St. Ursula have become the most recognizable segment of Pečko’s artistic work.
