There’s very little Croatian artwork on display here. In fact, it is the private collection of just one man, Ante Topić Mimara, who was born in Dalmatia and spent most of his life abroad but left everything to his country when he died. Here you can see paintings spanning several centuries and movements, by artists as disparate as Paolo Veneziano, Diego Velazquez, John Constable, and Edouard Manet, as well as a vast hoard of glass, ceramics, and textiles from all over the world. You’ll find the collection in a neo-Renaissance building, a 10-minute walk southwest of the main square.
