The Poster Collection
The Poster Collection includes artworks produced in the period from the 1930s until the present day. Thematically, the most numerous items are exhibition and theatre posters, which are not significant only for their artistic value, but also as documents on the cultural events in Split throughout the 20th century. Among the earliest examples, one should single out the posters made for exhibitions at Salon Galić, work of some of the prominent artists of the time, such as Emanuel Vidović, Vjekoslav Parać, Ivan Mirković, and Marino Tartaglia. As for the later period, a particularly important segment includes more than 80 posters by Gorki Žuvela, which the artist donated to the Museum of Fine Arts in 2007. The collection also contains seminal theatre posters designed by Boris Bućan in the 1980s for the Croatian National Theatre in Split, among which The Fire Bird (1983) and Petrushka by Igor Stravinsky are certainly the most famous ones.
