After having completed his studies in Vienna and after having lived in Paris, Rome, Cannes, and London, Ivan Meštrović returned to his homeland in 1919 as an acclaimed and successful artist. In 1920, he bought some parcels in Mletacka Street in the historic centre of the city of Zagreb and undertook some additional building work on the houses and decorated the premises to be his home and working area.
The place became a home to Ivan Mestrovic, his second wife Olga and their children. They lived there until 1942, when Ivan Mestrovic left the country. In 1952, a contract of donation was concluded between Ivan Mestrovic and the government of the People’s Republic of Croatia, which included the complex in order to convert the complex into an exhibition space with the permanent display of donated Mestrovic’s works (today called the Mestrovic Atelier),
The Mestrovic Atelier, the permanent exhibition of Ivan Mestrovic’s works, was completely opened to the public in 1969. The holdings of the Mestrovic Atelier consisted of 300 works of art from Mestrovic.
