The Croatian Museum of Naive Art
The Croatian Museum of Modern Art is founded in 1952 and as such it is the oldest museum of Naive in the world. Naive, as a distinct segment of the art of the 20th century, includes a discrete group of self-taught, uneducated artists. In Croatia it was at first works of peasants and working men, small craftsmen, traders, pensioners, ordinary men and women, the common people of the nation, but the most successful authors eventually became a professional artists, which is a major feature of our Naive. Naive is the consequence and proof of democratization of artistic creativity. It clearly shows that everyone has the right to express themselves artistically and that art schools are not a guarantee of artistic value, because art can be achieved without them. In its holding there are more than 1,900 works of art – paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints. The permanent exhibition was created with the motto: Naive art as a segment of modern art. Eighty notable paintings, sculptures and drawings by fifteen classics of the Croatian Naive, from the early thirties to the 1980s are on show. Along with their works, some of the most important artists from other countries and cultures are also on show. The exhibited works are from Ivan Generalić, Dragan Gaži, Ivan Večenaj, Ivan Rabuzin and many others, both Croatian and foreign artists. In CMNA expert guidance is available by appointment.
