The Naive – also called naive art, the
art of the naives, primitive art, the art of the modern primitives
and so on – is a distinct segment of the art of the 20th century.
It is comprehends a discrete group of painters and sculptors
untrained in the ways of art, among the limitless number of
kinds of expressions and trends in modern art. The Naive is
a concept that we use to interrelate some of the separate worlds
of modern artistic creativity.[more]
The Croatian Museum of Naive Art holds more than
1,875 works of art – paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints
– mainly by Croatian artists. The permanent display of the
Museum was established according to the maxim: Naive Art as
a Segment of Modern Art. The focus is on Croatian artists
– of the celebrated Hlebine School, and a few of the more
highly-valued independent artists. [more]
