Gallery of Matica Srpska

The gallery was founded in 1847 in Budapest under the auspices of Matica Srpska, the oldest cultural, literary and scientific association amongst the Serbs. With a collection of about ten thousand works of art important for Serbian national art and culture in the period from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century, it is one of the richest art museums in the country. In addition to the permanent collections, exhibitions and events, visitors’ attention is each month directed to one work of art that is specifically promoted.
