With the exhibition Magical Landscapes at the Artmark Gallery, the National Museum of Modern Art continues its collaboration with the Romanian auction house Artmark. Artmark’s gallery activities in Croatia began in the summer of 2023 with the presentation of 26 iconic works from the NMMA collection at the exhibition Summer Prelude. The selected works, displayed in chronological order, showcased the development of Croatian modern art from the academic period in the late 19th century to the high modernism of the 1960s.
The exhibition Magical Landscapes is also based on the collection of the National Museum of Modern Art and presents the chronological development of the landscape genre within the scope of the Museum’s collection. Twenty-six paintings chosen for the display – created between 1856 and 1980, that is, from Hugo Conrad von Hötzendorf to Boris Dogan – were selected by the museum consultants Lada Bošnjak Velagić, head of the Collection of 20th-century painting from 1918 to 1945, and Željko Marciuš, head of the Collection of painting from 1945. They jointly curate this guest project for the NMMA. The Zagreb cultural audience will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition at the Artmark Gallery from 24 January to 25 February.
