Art Museum · Museum
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.

  • The work of Croatian naive art pioneers are stunning! The museum is not a big space, but you can stare at these paintings for long time and admire their beauty.  more »
  • A small museum but with a wonderful collection of naive art. Not an art form with which I was that familiar so the exhibition was really interesting. Highly recommend.  more »
