Geocache Description:

A secluded place, reminder of Roman times and a tribute to a Slovenian impressionist painter Rihard Jakopič.


ENG: Rihard Jakopič was the leading Slovenian Impressionist painter of the early 20th century, patron of arts and theoretician. Together with his contemporaries, he is considered the pioneer of Slovenian Impressionist painting. He was born in Krakovo, at that time a suburb of Ljubljana, five minutes walk from here towards SouthEast. Jakopič was an initiator for the foundation of the National Gallery of Slovenia. In 1908, he built a pavilion in Tivoli Park (ten minutes walk to the North from here), based on plans by the architect Max Fabiani. The Jakopič Pavilion became the central venue for art exhibitions at the time. It was demolished in winter 1961/1962 due to the relocation of a railway line.

So it is not a coincidence that in 1988 the Jakopič Gallery was established (and later renovated in 2007). It is a contemporary exhibiting space, situated in the underground of an architectural complex, designed by Edvard Ravnikar on the location of the Roman Forum in Emona, and includes in situ the reconstruction of the ruins of ancient government buildings. The gallery represents a bridge between museum and gallery activities of the City museum of Ljubljana.

The geocache is hidden away from prying eyes in a quiet place, accessible by a wheelchair. Contains a logbook and a pencil.

SLO: Rihard Jakopič je bil osrednja osebnost slovenskega slikarstva v prvi polovici 20. stoletja. Skupaj s sodobniki je izoblikoval impresionistični slog slikanja. Rodil se je v Krakovem, takrat predmestju Ljubljane, pet minut hoda od tukaj proti jugovzhodu. Po načrtih Maksa Fabianija je dal leta 1908 na svoje stroške zgraditi prvo slovensko umetniško razstavno galerijo, t. i. Jakopičev paviljon - deset minut hoda od tukaj proti severu, nasproti Narodne galerije, katere ustanovitev je tudi Jakopičeva zasluga. Jakopičev paviljon je bil porušen pozimi 1961/1962 zaradi urbanističnih posegov in prestavitve železniške proge.

Tako ni naključje, da je bila leta 1988 v podterenu v neposredni bližini zakladka zgrajena Galerija Jakopič (obnovljena leta 2007), ki je sodoben razstavni prostor v sklopu arhitekturnega kompleksa skupine Edvarda Ravnikarja, in predstavlja most med muzejsko in galerijsko dejavnostjo Muzeja in galerij mesta Ljubljane. Galerija stoji na lokaciji rimskega foruma Emone in v svoji notranjosti in zunanjem zidu ohranja rekonstrukcijo ostankov starodavnega rimskega vladnega poslopja.

Geokeš se nahaja na mirnem kraju, dostopnem z invalidskim vozičkom, odmaknjen od pogledov. Vsebuje dnevnik in svinčnik.
