Šetalište Ivana Meštrovića 46
Ivan Meštrović Gallery, is an art museum in Split, Croatia dedicated to the work of the 20th-century sculptor, Ivan Meštrović. The gallery preserves and presents to the public the most significant works of Meštrović, and is in itself an art monument.
Ivan Meštrović bought a piece of land on the Marjan peninsula west of Split in the 1920s, where he intended to build a summer home. The villa was built between 1931 and 1939 to an original design by Meštrović himself, and he was involved right though its construction.
The gallery’s holdings today contain 192 sculptures, 583 drawings, 4 paintings, 291 architectural plans (almost entirely made by Ivan Meštrović and dating between 1898 and 1961), and 2 furniture sets, one of which is made according to Meštrović’s sketches and is a part of the new permanent display in the former dining room. The Ivan Meštrović Gallery also houses 168 works of art owned by Ivan Meštrović’s heirs.
