Vasa Eskicevic (1867 – 1933), Serbian

Vasa Eskicevic was academic painter, who learned painting in Vienna and in Russia, where he was among students of Ilja Rjepin. He is representative of style of academic realism. His works have documentary value, so their cultural and historical significance exceeds their artistic value. Aside of a painting, he was also a writer and a translator, and he was also a member of literal section in Matica Srpska.

As a Serbian war painter, Vasa Eskicevic visited different parts of Macedonia in the period 1910-1920. He produced many drawings, watercolors and oil paintings mainly depicting the life of the Serbian army.

About Me

Vlatko potpis s

This lexicon is a result of my 15 years long period of researching & documenting the personalities and the artworks of the foreign painters, sculptors, illustrators, and photographers having visited different spots of the geographic territory of Macedonia, there having created works of art there over a 100-years long period i.e. between 1850-1950. Their presence and artwork in the Macedonian milieus represent a notable cultural heritage to the international linkage of the ethnic Macedonians as well as to all the ethnicities living in the picturesque territory of Macedonia and the cultures of modern-day countries spread over parts of the geographic territory of Macedonia. Witnessing the artistic contributions of the foreign artist, we are proud of their Macedonia-themed creative works and experiences. I believe that their artworks, having been inspired and created over the vast region of Macedonia, unite us all in these challenging times, and under the facts and the values of the artistic beauty.
