Strossmayer Gallery (Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts)
The Strossmayer Gallery of Old Masters of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts dedicates special attention to the study of artistic, scientific, and cultural themes which are contained in the basic program of activities of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts. The bishop and benefactor Josip Juraj Strossmayer set up a trust fund for the purpose of establishing this institution and in 1860 submitted a large donation to the then viceroy (ban) of Croatia Josip Šokčević. The Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts has organized over one hundred scientific meetings and conferences, evaluating works of important Croats throughout history. In addition, it has organized a number of symposia focusing on the history and economic development of Croatian regions, cities and towns, as well as on the problems of Croatia’s development. Over the years, the bishop of Đakovo, Josip Juraj Strossmayer, had collected numerous works of art, from the fifteenth century Italian Primitives to contemporary Croatian painters of his time.
