DIOGEN pro art magazine...No 65....Kolë IDROMENO (1860 – 1939) is the most distinguished painter of the Albanian National Renaissance. He was born in Shkodra, where he learned the first elements of photography from Pjetër Marubi. In 1876 he stayed for a few months at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, and then worked in the studio of an Italian painter. When back in Albania (1878), he engaged himself in a number of different activities, working as an architect, sculptor, photographer, painter and engineer. He can be easily named “Da Vinci” of Albania. He was the initiator of the first art exhibition in Shkodra (1923) and was represented in the first national art exhibition at Tirana (1931). Kole Idromeno established a very active photo studio and was the first to show moving pictures in Albania (1912) due to his correspondence with the Lumiere brothers in Paris.His paintings are very rich in details and of a highly artistic value. He created a number of ethnographic compositions.
