Foreign artists


3.3.2015.

The CMNA possesses a representative and worthwhile collection of works by foreign artists, primarily of those who at one time or another exhibited in the Gallery of Primitive Art – today the Croatian Museum of Naive Art: the Pole Nikifor, the Frenchmen Simon Schwartzenberg and Germain van der Steen, the Italian Enrico Benassi, the German sculptor Erich Bödeker and the Dutchman Willem van Genk. From Macedonia comes the painter Vangel Naumovski, and from Serbia the sculptors Bogosav Živković and Milan Stanisavljević, the painter Ilija Bosijl, and one of the most celebrated Art Brut painters in the world, Sava Sekulić. Also in the collection are works of the Italian Pietro Ghizzardi, the Russian Pavel Leonov and the sculptress Sofija Naletilić Penuvaša. Their works show not only the exceptional contributions of the artists mentioned, but all the diversity of the Naive and its swings towards the trends of Art Brut and Outsider Art, phenomena that have in the last decade gained greatly in value and importance.
