ROBERTO LONGHI E I DIPINTI DELLA GALLERIA STROSSMAYER DI ZAGABRIA


Ljerka Dulibić

 

 

 

In 1958, Roberto Longhi wrote a short letter to the Strossmayer Gallery of Old Masters in Zagreb, Croatia, as an expression of gratitude for receiving a copy of the 1950’s edition of the catalogue of the Strossmayer Gallery’s painting collection. Tracing Longhi’s remarks about some of the catalogue entries, the author jux- taposes them with new insight into the paintings he had singled out, giving at the same time a broader context of the history and historiography of the Strossmayer Gallery’s Old Masters’ painting collection.
