Ivan Meštrović (1883–1962) is the greatest Croatian artist of the 20th century and one of the most important Central European artists to have attained world renown. He developed a unique method of combining architecture with urban planning, antique and Byzantine heritage with Modernism, or Slavonic and Balkan culture with Mediterranean civilisation. Meštrović is a creator of large sculptural works – iconic for Croatian culture – creations combining sculpture with architecture (Avala near Belgrade, Split, Lovćen, Otavice, Cavtat) and sculptural urban projects (Split, Zagreb, Chicago, Bucharest, Warsaw [not implemented]). This is the first presentation of Meštrović’s works in Poland.
