IVAN MEŠTROVIĆ’S BEST WORKS

The Meštrović Atelier, an art museum with a permanent exhibition of works by Ivan Meštrović, is an adapted part of the complex which Ivan Meštrović purchased and renovated at the beginning of the 20th century. This was when the artist had returned to his homeland and settled in Zagreb after he had become a world-known success and after studying in Vienna. Ivan Meštrović certainly had a major role in the design of the whole, given that he had his own wishes as the client and he had knowledge and tendency towards architecture. Finally, the character of the realized refers to the general features of his later architectural projects.

The museum stands out only with a meticulous monumentality achieved by an extra floor, the bright colour of exterior walls and the entrance door. The former housing and workspace of Ivan Meštrović is now an attractive exhibition space with a pronounced memorial character. The works of Ivan Meštrović from the collection of the Meštrović Atelier created in the first four decades of his work, from his first student works to works created immediately prior to his departure from Zagreb in 1942 are exhibited in the authentic ambience of the artist’s former home and studio.
