New Acquisitions at the Modern Gallery 2009 – 2014 Paintings, sculptures, medals…

From January 27, to February 22, 2015

With the unflagging supplementation of the collections and the regular exhibition of the new acquisitions, the permanent display of the Modern Gallery is an ever-more opulent anthology of the fine arts and a place not to be missed from the point of view of deepening the knowledge of the peaks of the fine arts in Croatia. In the last five years the gallery collections have been enhanced with more than 370 first-rate works of painting and sculpture, acquired almost entirely by deeds of gift of the artists and the heirs to their estates, as well as with purchases made with financial support from the Adris Foundation, City of Zagreb and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia. Thus the insight into the summa of values of the Croatian modern heritage has been enlarged, for example, with works of such great figures as Vlaho Bukovac, Gabrijel Jurkić, Maksimilijan Vanka, Krsto Hegedušić, Miljenko Stančić and numbers of other excellent Croatian 20th century painters. We might particularly mention from the artworks gifted for the collections of recent fine art the installation of the ingenious and always youthful Ivan Kožarić, a fascinating object of Nikola Koydl and oil paintings of the bard of the new landscape art in Croatian contemporary painting, Josip Pino Trostmann, as well as works by younger artists, Martina Grlić and Stjepan Tadić, who have given back easel painting its primacy, to the delight of the public and the pride of the art of painting. Wanting the beauty of these valuable and important works to be seen in the public, on December 23, the Modern Gallery will present the exhibition New Acquisitions and Donations in the MG.
