Pirnat's work is of extreme documentary and cultural-historical significance, especially his drawings and caricatures of Slovenian artists from the world of theater, music, literature and painting.He is particularly well-known in the world of fine arts as a witty recorder of time during which he lived and worked. That is why the public knows him almost exclusively for his drawings and illustrations.
