Branko Vlahović (Zagreb, 1924 - Zagreb, 1979) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb in 1951. In 1953, he completed his postgraduate studies under the sculptor Frane Kršinić. His earlier works explored geometric forms similar to architecture. Works during the 1966 - 1968 period are closed objects of cubic volume executed in patinated wood, while between 1968 - 1974 he abandoned symmetry and produced most of his works in black sheet metal. Towards the end of his career, he worked with highly polished metal. Vlahović's works are considered to represent the most important examples of Minimalism in Croatia.
