Historical portrait

The fundamental guidelines of the Institute's activities were defined during the 1960s by art historians Milan Prelog (1919-1988), for research of historic city cores and built cultural heritage, and Grgo Gamulin (1910-1997), for the field of visual arts. Under the guidance of its founders, the Institute affirmed both its key role and its position as the point of coordination of all art-historical research in Croatia
