Dr Josip Kovaèiæ's collection of paintings done by
Croatian women painters is an exceptional bequest, a whole consisting of
motifs of various origins but of a unique conceptual level. The collected
Croatian women painters, educated in the capital cities of Europe and in Zagreb, obviously
succeeded in conveying their personal idea about painting being their vocation at least
in one period of their life.
The variety of their painting styles is noticeable and reflects the time when the works were created,
so we can easily follow the history of the events and trends in modern European art at the end of
the 19th and in the first half of the 20th century.
