Unique to Croatia, the so-called Hlebine School was made up of farmers from the village of Hlebine in north Croatia. Although they had no formal art education, their work attracted considerable interest, and became known as Croatian Naïve Art. Besides working on canvases, they often painted on glass, employing bright, garish colors and depicting farm animals and scenes from rural life. On display in this Baroque mansion you can see pieces by noted naïve artists, such as Ivan Generalić and Ivan Lacković.
