Description

The Museum of Applied Art was founded in 1950 and belongs to the category of art museums of a specialised type. In addition to national applied arts items the museum houses items from a number of other countries, collected through cultural and economic relations.

The Museum of Applied Arts purchased a valuable collection of various artistically processed objects upon its opening, collected during a period of thirty years by the painter and engraver Ljuba Ivanović. The collection contained over 3,000 objects, the most prominent in terms of their historical and artistic value being the works of jewellers, objects carved from wood, resin and mother of pearl, woodcuts and painted icons. The oldest items owned by the museum date back to the 4th century B.C.E. and are part to the numismatic collection (ancient Greek coins).
