The Modern Gallery is a public institution that, as a public service, performs museum activities of interest to the Republic of Croatia. It presents Croatian fine art of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. It is located in the center of Zagreb, in the historicist palace Vranyczany, built in the 80s of the 19th century according to the project of the Viennese architect Otto Hofer. In the permanent exhibition, it presents more than 750 top modern, modern and state-of-the-art works by painters, sculptors, medalists and artists of new media, which testify to the peaks of Croatian fine art from the 19th century to the present day. From classics such as painters Vlaho Bukovac, Mate Celestin Medović, Miroslav Kraljević, Josip Račić, sculptors Robert Frangeš Mihanović, Ivan Meštrović, Ivo Kerdić, Fran Kršinić and Branislav Dešković to contemporary greats of brushes, chisels and new media, there are masterpieces of landscape. fiural and abstract painting, portrait and animalistic sculpture, and conceptual art, art photography and video art. In a more problematic but chronological exhibition, all important phenomena, phenomena, movements and individuals who built a modern national historical and artistic profile are presented, concluding with masterpieces by contemporary authors that affirm Croatian fine arts on the European scene. The holdings of the Modern Gallery with more than 11,000 works are the richest collection of Croatian fine art of recent times and an inexhaustible source of knowledge about its sources, development and contemporary achievements. By continuously filling the collections and regularly exhibiting new acquisitions, the permanent exhibition of the Modern Gallery is an increasingly lavish anthology of fine arts and an unavoidable place for deepening knowledge about the past and present of the Croatian art scene.
