Croatian Naive Art

Croatian Museum of Naive Art

The works of mainly self-taught artists and sculptors, who produced wonderful pieces of personal and professional style without any formal training, are exhibited in Zagreb’s Croatian Museum of Naïve Art.

Paintings, drawings and colourful sculptures mainly by artists from Croatia and its surrounding region, dating from the1930s to the 1970s, are sure to capture the attention of untrained viewers and art experts alike. Franjo Mraz, Sofija Natetilic have exhibited here and some of the most striking exhibits are Emerik Fejes’ vibrant city monuments, Ivan Generalic’s rural landscapes and Ivan Rabuzin’s heavenly paintings with visions of eternal spring.
