Summary: The research on the distribution of works of art on the
determined territory during a long period of time resulted with a
catalogue. Insight into the organization and artistic shaping of the
Croatian space, comprises all the differences occuring due to their
different geographic situation, revealing the causes that arise out of the
actual differencies. This research encompasses the space organization,
urban and rural agglomerations,single monuments of architecture in the
respective settlements, lost monuments (archeological sites), as well as
the movable monuments - sculptures, paintings and artistic craft. Data are
being prepared for the computerized processing for the whole inventory of
the cultural heritage of Croatia. The final goal is to publish all the
results in a book. In 1993. the systematic research concerning the art
topography of the Križevci region resulted with a book KRIŽEVCI - GRAD I
OKOLICA (Križevci - the town and its surroundings) published by the
Institute for History of art, Zagreb 1993., 422 pages of the folio size.
Art topography research continues on the town of Požega and Ludbreg with
the appertaining territory. In Dalmatia and Istra the research embraces
several topics and problems.

Research goals: The main goal of the research project is to
establish a systematized inventory of the works and monuments of art along
with their precise spatial and chronological distribution. The fundamental
scope of the research does not represent more confirmation of statistics
for cultural heritage, but is aiming at reaching the deeper comprehension
of the mutual relation of the monument and the territory of its origin.
Art topography is in fact a large register of art monuments organized after
their location, bringing forward the evidence of cultural and material
values and goods created on historical and geographical territory of
Croatia during its thousand year lasting oast. The significance of such an
inventory is manyfolded: in the first place obtained is through scientific
research systematically organized substance, in practice its results
represent a fundamental information for the protection and revitalization
of monuments (supplying all the userswith an entire list of monuments), in
the second place these results should be obligatory for the spatial and
urban planning because they deliver all the necessary evaluation support.
All the scientific results of this project are to be the base for further
scientific exploration of architectural and other art heritage in Croatia
especially when treating issues on the development of the style, chronology
and typology comprised in the synthetic surveys. Final goal is to establish
a distributed computerized data base containing the information on single
monument and other cultural heritage, which shall at first be published
separetly in relevant editions, and finaly in particular books in which
substantial wholes plan to be presented.
