About the event:
Exhibition of art collection
Opening hours: 10:00 am - 7:00 pm, closed on Mondays and holidays
The collection of Pula collector Zoran Franjić in its entirety includes more than three hundred works of art by Pula, Istrian, Croatian and international artists, among which paintings (on canvas, paper, board, metal), paintings-drawings, drawings and graphics are the most prominent. It is about different stylistic and thematic determinants and authorial peculiarities, given that the collection simultaneously includes works of which the earliest dates back to 1929, while the most recent work to come into the collection was created in 2018, which already underlines the breadth of the collector's interests. These include contemporary art which certainly occupies an important place.
In addition to several works of art from the family legacy, a special extension of the exhibition is represented by oeuvres collected during the collector's numerous travels around the world, where, in addition to creations by renowned academic artists, we also come across handicrafts and other curiosities related to certain indigenous cultures and traditions.
