The Croatian Association of Fine Artists (HDLU) is a nongovernmental, not-for-profit, and politically neutral union of professionals. Its membership consists exclusively of around 2.000 visual artists of all generations, working in all forms of expression and disciplines. The Association was established in 1868 and has been continuously active since then. Basic aims of the Association are: to support and encourage contemporary visual expression, to improve and protect the freedom of visual expression, to organize exhibitions, and to participate in the making of the laws and rules regulating visual arts production and the social rights of the artists. HDLU runs 4 differently profiled galleries out of which 3 are located in a cultural heritage site in central Zagreb – Meštrović Pavilion.
