Vladimir Filakovac (Brod na Sava, March 9, 1892 – Zagreb, November 22, 1972), the Croatian painter.
He studied in Budapest, lived in Vienna and Osijek, and worked as a pedagogue at the academy in Belgrade and from 1941 in Zagreb. In painting, he continues the tradition of the Munich circle with figural compositions, seascapes, landscapes and portraits. Later, a number of post-impressionist works were created. He is particularly distinguished by his studies of animals, and he made illustrations and furnished books. He moved from tone to color, and in numerous drawings and graphics he showed himself to be an excellent animalist and caricaturist. He also did illustrations and decorated books.
