Art Gallery “Sava Sumanovic”

Art Gallery “Sava Sumanovic” was founded in 1952 as a result of a gift contract according to which Persida Šumanovic, painter's mother, gave a legacy of 417 paintings of her late son Sava to a town of Šid ten years after his death. Her great wish, generosity and persistence lead to the fact that the town of Šid has in its possession the legacy of enormous artistic and material value. Accordingto the very precise regulations of the contract, the legacy was placed in their family house which was, until then,used as a Municipal Court. Former building which had 400m2 of exhibit hall was completed and adapted in1989 so the Gallery has 600m2 of exhibit hall today. This made it possible for the gallery to have a largenumber of paintings on permanent display and in that way it offers visitors the opportunity to experience Sava Sumanovic's creative work in the authentic ambient. 

Among a total number of 417 Sava Sumanovic's paintings, the Gallery in Šid owns 350 paintings done in oil and 67 sketches in different techniques (drawing, pastel,  watercolour, diluted tempera paint). Most paintings belong to the last creative period (Sid's period), i.e. they were made during the lastdecade of painter's life.
