The National Gallery of Bosnia and Herzegovina was established by the Government of the People’s Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina on 11th of October, 1946.
1ABOUT
The core of its initial collection consisted of about 600 exhibits that were transferred over from the former Gallery of the National Museum of BiH. The Gallery’s doors were first opened to the public in 1959 with its first permanent exhibition. Today, the collection consists of over 6,000 invaluable pieces divided into several sub-collections (the Collection of Bosnian-Herzegovinian art, the Collection of Ferdinand Hodler’s works, the Collection of Icons, the Collection of Yugoslav art, the Collection of international works donated to the Gallery, the Collection of photographs and the archive of the “NADA” fine arts magazine). In addition to the collection, there is a Documentation and Library Department that enables thorough research to be carried out on variety of art topics, within the Gallery’s premises. Restoration, carpentry and gilders’ workshops, a photo-studio with photo-library and Pedagogical Department are also set up to serve the general public.
