Vatroslav Kuliš, A Critical Retrospective 1974 – 2020
Authored by art critic Milan Bešlić, in the twelve exhibition halls on the first floor of the palace the exhibition is presenting more than one hundred large- and small-format paintings and objects which Kuliš has created since 1974.
About his retrospective at the National Museum of Modern Art, Vatroslav Kuliš stated: For me, the space of the National Museum of Modern Art is an emotionally most layered space. It was sometime at the beginning of my education at the School of Applied Arts and Design that I first visited the museum. At the time, the National Museum of Modern Art was a temple of painting for me, a sacred space. It was with admiration and piety that I viewed the work of Račić, Kraljević, Motika, Dulčić… I dreamed of exhibiting the supreme achievements of my youthful rapture one day
