Works of Croatian artists can now be seen on the famous Artsy platform
The Museum of Modern Art in Dubrovnik has announced some exciting news: starting from May 24, they’ll be participating in the Artsy project, an online platform that serves as a digital collection of art from all around the world.
Artsy is known as one of the best resources for visual arts and museums online, and it means a great deal for the modern and contemporary Croatian art from MoMA’s collection to be presented on their website. In their official announcement, the MoMA team stated they were eager to make the collection known worldwide to promote the artists from Dubrovnik and Croatia in general, and to help the contemporary Croatian artists to gain more visibility on the international scene.
The digitised collection at Artsy already includes some of the best works by Croatian art legends such as Vlaho Bukovac, Ivan Meštrović, Josip Vaništa, Milivoj Uzelac, and Zlatko Prica. The online gallery features paintings, sculptures, and photographs dating from the end of the 19th century to the present day, and provides the international audience with an opportunity to see the works of Dubrovnik-born artists like Đuro Pulitika and Ivo Dulčić.
MoMA will be adding more artworks to their Artsy gallery on a weekly basis, and they have a lot to choose from: the museum was founded in 1945, currently manages the Dulčić-Masle-Pulitika Gallery and the Pulitika Atelier in the Old Town, and disposes of a collection counting more than 3000 pieces.
If you’re visiting Dubrovnik, make sure to take some time to see the three phenomenal art destinations managed by MoMA, and definitely have a look at their gallery on Artsy – either for a preview, or as a sort of memory you can view no matter where you go.
