Born in 1450, Marko Marulic was a poet and humanist who is known as the father of the Croatian Renaissance. He studied classical languages, literature and philosophy taking inspiration from the Bible. His works, which were written in Latin, were translated into many languages and published during the 16th & 17th centuries. The bronze bust (above) is the work of the 20th century Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrović and is on display in the City Museum, Split.
