Strossmayer Gallery of Old Masters information
Lonely Planet review
This museum is housed in the 19th-century neo-Renaissance Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences. The lovely building showcases the impressive fine-art collection donated to the city by Bishop Strossmayer in 1884.
It includes Italian masters from the 14th to 19th centuries, such as Tintoretto, Veronese and Tiepolo; Dutch and Flemish painters such as J Brueghel the Younger; French and Spanish artists Proudhon and El Greco; and the classic Croatian artists Medulić and Benković.
The interior courtyard contains the Baška Slab (Bašćanska Ploča), a stone tablet from the island of Krk, which features the oldest example of Glagolitic script, dating from 1102. There is also a statue of Bishop Strossmayer by Ivan Meštrović.
