Ľudovít Fulla was a harbinger of Slovak Modernism. Together with his colleague Mikuláš Galanda, he penned the first manifesto of Slovak Modernism, advocating for the originality of expression, personal investment in the subject matter and simplicity of form.

Fulla created a unique blend of disparate influences - children's art, medieval iconographic, European avant-garde painting and folk art. He innovated in many fields, including book illustration and stage design.

Fulla's largest paintings are often crowded, intensely colourful and full of small scenes, inviting the viewer for closer inspection. This winter vision of Žilina - the cultural and industrial hub of north-western Slovakia - is an exuberant celebration of snow and the communal life.
