The Pavle Beljanski Memorial Collection

The Pavle Beljanski Memorial Collection
Novi Sad, Serbia


The Pavle
Beljanski Memorial Collection, as a unique type of museum, bears the name of
its contributor and founder Pavle Beljanski (19 June 1892 – 14 July 1965). As a
diplomat and a great collector, residing in the European capitals, Beljanski
had the oportunity to study  great works
of art, to meet famous persons of literature and science (Jovan Dučić, Ivo
Andrić Rastko Petrović, Milutin Milanković, Veljko Petrović, Isidora Sekulić)
and artists whose works would be represented in his collection. Pavle Beljanski
bequeathed his collection of 185 artworks by thirty-seven artists, the most
important representatives of Serbian modern art, to the Serbian nation by
signing a special Donation Contract with the Executive Council of AP Vojvodina
(November 1957).

The Pavle
Beljanski Memorial Collection was opened to the public on 22 October 1961 in
the building especially designed by architect Ivo Kurtović. Due to its
architectural value the building was declared a cultural monument in 1992.

The Permanent
exhibition of the Memorial Collection, apart from the collection of Pavle
Beljanski which contains a representative anthology of the Serbian
modern art from the first half of the 20th century, also includes
two memorials: The Pavle Beljanski's Memorial (1966) and
The Artists' Memorial (1971 ).
