See an exhibit of 80 paintings, prints, and sculptures by self-taught Croatian and international artists at Croatian Museum of Naive Art. Between the 1930s and the 1980s, these works were produced mainly by peasants and working men who had created their own styles and achieved fame. This art movement thrives on freedom and creativity, but differs from amateur art due to its highly poetic nature. The museum's collection totals 1,850 pieces, which it exhibits in rotation. View these expressions of individualism, with the common themes of social events and gatherings, rural life and work, and the creations of untamed imagination.

I think that it is possible to appreciate everything in 30 minutes if only a quick glance. There is also a free toilet in the back room.
I had heard of the Naive art movement and have been wanting to come to this museum for years. I finally got the chance this September and even though it is a small collection, everything was magnifice... more »
