The Modern Gallery

The Modern Gallery is one of Zagreb’s museums. It is situated in the Vranyczany Palace at Hebrangova Street number 1, next to the Strossmayer Gallery of Old Masters. The museum is home to a permanent exhibition of paintings and sculptures, mostly authored by Croatian artists from the 19th and 20th centuries, and holds some of the most significant artwork of that period. The authors whose work is exhibited at the museum are the following: Vjekoslav Karas, Vlaho Bukovac, Miroslav Kraljević, Josip Račić, Milan Steiner, Vladimir Becić, Jozo Kljaković, Ferdo Kovačević, Tomislav Krizman, Celestin Medović, Mirko Rački, Milivoj Uzelac, Bela Čikoš Sesija and others. The Modern Gallery was established in 1905, at first as a part of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts. A part of the gallery today is also a smaller Studio Josip Račić at 3 Margaretska Street. Besides the permanent exhibition, there is also a library, a restoration workshop, the museum shop and a café.
