Kobilca is considered to be the most successful Slovenian woman artist. As her contemporaries already acknowledged, she succeeded in achieving things that her male colleagues were not able to. She exhibited in the respectable Salon in Paris for several times and became a membre associée of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. She spent most of her creative period in European capitals (Vienna, Munich, Paris, Sarajevo, Berlin) and returned to Ljubljana only at the outset of the Great War. After the Munich phase, in which murky brownish tones prevailed in her colouring, she painted in violet, blue and green tones in Paris, later, during her sojourn in Berlin, also in white ones. Her oeuvre is marked by portrayals of her family members and children, portraits of members of middle-class society, mainly of Ljubljana, genre scenes and especially flowers.
