Jerolim Miše was born on 25 September 1890 in Split. He began to study painting at the craft school in Split,[1] then attended the Academy of Fine Arts, Zagreb, but moved to Rome, and finally Florence where he completed his formal training at the Accademia Internazionale.[1] The move to Rome came after an incident where he published criticism of his teacher Menci Clement Crnčić in the paper Zvono.[2]

During his time in Italy (1891–1914), he wrote critiques and reviews of the Italian contemporary arts scene for newspapers and journals back home. He continued to write and publish stimulating articles about the visual arts scene right though his life built up a reputation as an articulate and well informed critic.[1]

On the eve of the First World War, Miše returned to Split. During the war he was conscripted,[1] and afterwards spent a number of years (1917–1937) teaching in schools in Krapina, Slavonski Brod and Zagreb.[2]

His first solo exhibition was held in 1914 in Split, and from 1917 he participated in the exhibitions of the Spring Salon in Zagreb.[1] During the period 1921-1927 he exhibited with the Independent Group of Artists (Grupa nezavisnih umjetnika) whose other members were Ljubo Babić, Vladimir Becić, Jozo Kljaković, Frano Kršinić, Ivan Meštrović, Marin Studin, Zlatko Šulentić and Vladimir Varlaj.[3] In 1928, he was part of the Group of Four (Grupa četvorice) with (Ljubo Babić, Vladimir Becić and Maksimilijan Vanka) and from 1929 the Group of Three (Grupa Trojice) which consisted of himself, Ljubo Babić and Vladimir Becić. He exhibited abroad in group exhibits in Paris (1919) and London (1930).[4]

In 1922 he undertook a study tour of Munich, Berlin and Dresden, where he got to know the work of the old masters, and Cézanne. He visited Paris in 1925 and 1929, events that were crucial in forming his mature artistic style.[2] He painted many portraits, self-portraits and still lifes. He immortalized the landscape of Brač, Šolta, Krk, Korčula and the Dubrovnik region.[2]

In 1937, he went to teach at the Academy of Art in Belgrade, until 1943 when he moved to the Academy of Fine Arts, Zagreb where he worked until his retirement in 1961.[2]

Jerolim Miše died on 14 September 1970 in Split.[2]
