History of the Fine Arts Collection of the Valpovo Landowners

Jasminka Najcer Sabljak, PhD, Silvija Lučevnjak

The fine arts collection of the Valpovo landowners is specific because it developed in the circle of two families, the family of barons Hilleprand von Prandau and counts Normann-Ehrenfels, but considering that it includes art that connects the location of collecting and the continuity created after the transfer of the collection on the basis of family heritage, we can treat it as a single unit.

 

Considering that the collection was primarily created and developed in the residential space of the Valpovo castle, in this paper we will refer to it as the Valpovo Collection and it will be described chronologically, i.e. its development will be observed starting with the period when it was under the care of the Hilleprand von Prandau family, then the Normann-Ehrenfels family, and finally, we will be addressing its fate during World War II and the period after that war, when it was partially devastated and partly preserved in museum institutions.
