A unique exhibition “Sava Šumanović and European realisms between the two world wars” opened on September 24 at the Gallery Square, which marked the start of the visual arts week within the current Kaleidoscope of Culture in Novi Sad.
The exhibition includes the majority of works of one of the most important Serbian painters of the last century, realised in three exhibitions. DDOR osiguranje, as the official insurance of the project “Novi Sad – European Capital of Culture” and program arch Kaleidoscope of Culture, provided full support in the realisation of this important event and thoroughly special exhibition.

Moreover, the “Sava Šumanović” Art Gallery in Šid is included in the implementation of the program, where the third exhibition will be held. Šumanović’s art from the period between 1919 and 1940 will be presented through works from the three mentioned museums, as well as loaned works by the artist from the leading national cultural institutions from our country, as well as museums from Croatia, North Macedonia and France.
