Although the birth of modern art did not cause the creation of Naive art, it contributed with its anti-academism to the recognition and acceptance of that art. However, in Serbia as well, this art was accompanied by many questions and dilemmas from the very beginning: from disagreement about its terminological determination (original, folk, primitive, self-taught, rurally amateurish, naive...) to its essential definition. All of that could be discussed, but the freshness and originality of Naive art can not be disputed whatsoever. It has its aesthetic existence and spiritual role.
