Pavle "Paja" Jovanović

„Slike Balkana"

Slavu i popularnost slikara ljudi i običaja na Balkanu Pavle Paja Jovanovic je stekao vrlo rano, ne navrsivsi ni tridesetu godinu zivota. Zahvaljujući nesumnjivom daru i velikom radu, toliko i probudjenom interesovanju Evrope za Orijentom u XIX veku, brzo je stekao mnogo poklonika sirom sveta. Delo Paje Jovanovica je u svakom pogledu ogromno. Na njegovim poznatim zanr-scenama iz zivota balkanskih naroda i istorijskim kompozicijama vaspitavale su se generacije u proslosti. One su najsnaznije odjeknule u narodu i probudile nacionalna osecanja upravo u godinama koje su prethodile Balkanskim ratovima i Prvom svetskom ratu. U tom pogledu Paja Jovanovic je bio covek vremena u kome je ziveo i stvarao. Svestan da je tada pripadao jednom skromnom broju medjunarodno priznatih srpskih slikara, prihvatio je ulogu umetnika koji je, ravnopravno sa umetnicima drugih nacionalnosti u Austro-Ugarskoj monarhiji, opravdao etnicku i kulturnu samosvojnost Srba.

Vlaho Bukovac

Selected Artworks

Born in July 1855, the Croatian artist began his career in France where he painted in what is described as a “sugary” realistic style and gained great success at the Paris Salon. In 1887, Bukovac created what is possibly his best-known work, a nude Une Fleur (A Flower). The painting was well-received not only in France at the time, but it garnered numerous reviews and publications during his lifetime. Over the years he spent actively creating art, Bukovac’s style saw numerous changes – he was no stranger to stepping out of the set boundaries and rules dictated by the Salon. Both his life and work were nothing short of eclectic. The National Museum of Serbia keeps twenty-three of Vlaho Bukovac’s paintings. Between the portrait of Queen Natalie of Serbia (Natalija Obrenovic) made in 1882 and the portrait of King Alexander I (Aleksandar I Karadjordjevic) painted just before Bukovac’s death, there is a humble but stylistically and thematically diverse gallery of the artist’s oeuvre. Based on the established chronology and defined formative categories in painting, Bukovac’s artworks from the collection of the National Museum in Belgrade encompass almost all of the phases in his creative life – academism, realism, impressionism and symbolism, and as such they are represented for the first time in one place.

About

NATIONAL MUSEUM in Belgrade

The National Museum was founded by a decree of the Minister of Education Jovan Sterija Popovic on May 10, 1844, as Serbian Museum (Muzeum serbski) whose purpose was to collect antiquities in one place and to safeguard them for posterity. In the first decades of its work, it was organized as an institution of protection but also as a scientific and research institution that constituted the national identity and was a crucial participant in the development of heritage protection. The National Museum soon grew into an official representative of the state and the society, testifying to a possible strength of culture and museums in Serbia. The intensive activity of collecting and developing collections was soon joined with the diverse research work that transformed the Museum from the depot of the past into a demonstrating exhibition space. The years between the wars brought big transformations in which the exhibitions, especially international ones that partially decreased, and the diverse research and exceptional publishing activities positioned the Museum as a center of information on good, on beauty, on special values of the national, but also of European, heritage. In the last few decades, the rich exhibiting and publishing activity, as well as the diverse programs for the public with new technologies in a prominent place, confirmed that the National Museum is an important center of communication and source of knowledge, an open, dynamic, and accessible museum.
