Zoran Mušič (1909 – 2005) was a Slovene painter, printmaker, and draughtsman. He was the only painter of Slovene descent who managed to establish himself in the elite cultural circles of Italy and France, particularly Paris in the second half of the 20th century, where he lived for most of his later life. He painted landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and self-portraits, as well as scenes of horror from the Dachau concentration camp and vedute of Venice. He was deported to Dachau after refusing to be a part of an auxiliary unit of the nazi army.
The artist was awarded the Gualino prize in 1950, the Paris prize in 1951, and the Grand Prix for a work exhibited during the Venice Biennale. In 1952, his first exhibition in Paris is organized by Myriam Prévot and Gildo Caputo. He participated in the Salon de Mai in 1953 and received the UNESCO prize in 1960.
