Come true dream of Pal Homonaj

The House of King Petar I
Organiser: Museum of Naïve and Marginal Art
A retrospective exhibition of paintings of Pal Homonaj,
the classic of naïve art (1922-2010) opened at the House
of King Petar I on Tuesday, 18 June at 7.00 pm. The
selection of thirty representative artworks from the
collection of Museum of Naïve and marginal Art done in
tempera on hardboard and canvas bear witness of one of
the most delicate and lyrically elaborated paintings in
our naïve art. The recognisable world of paintings of
this artist is defined by deep synthesized experience of
nature, the strength and persistence of refined
stylization, specific harmonies of the transposed
landscapes and delicate colouring in refined palette of
pastel tones. The exhibition is accompanied by bilingual
monograph published by MNMA. The author of the
exhibition and monograph is Ivana Jovanović, art
historian, senior custodian at MNMA.
Director of MNMA Nina Krstić opened the exhibition. The
speeches were given by Nina Krstić, Dragana Drageljević
(The House of King Petar I) and Ivana Jovanović, the
author of the exhibition.
The accompanying programme includes the projection of
film Serbian Arcadia – Pal Homonaj.
The visitors may see the exhibition in the period 18
June -5 July 2019.
