View of Salona in Dalmatia
Oil on canvas of origin.
Monogrammed and located lower left: DALMATIA
Today in this seaside village in Dalmatia, bordering Split, we see the ruins of the ancient city of Salona which was the capital of Dalmatia. During the time of Augustus, it was a Roman colony and became the Roman stronghold in these regions. Graced by Diocletian, it was then seized and sacked by the Goths and then completely destroyed by the Avars in 640. Excavations begin in 1870 and have since continued. Between 1869 and 1880, Dalmatia was then attached administratively in Vienna, despite the Croatian claims resulting after the Austro-Hungarian dismantling after WWI.
