If you’re wondering just what the term naïve art means, you’re not alone. It’s a term used to describe art that is supposedly simplistic or even childlike and popular during the 1960s and 70s.

However, there’s nothing childlike about the Croatian Museum of Naïve Art. Home to over 1000 paintings, drawings, sculptures and the like, the museum is one of the best of its kind in Europe and possibly the world. The work of a lot of artists of the genre can be found here including Generalić, Virius, Mrzz, and Smaljić. Take a look at some of the works of art below.
