Nadezda Petrović (1873 -1915), Serbian

One of the most prominent Serbian painters. Born in Chachak in 1873. Started her art education in Belgrade in 1891 at the Female Gymnasium and later in Drawing School.

After her stay in Paris in 1911, she returned to Belgrade where she opens an Art School. In the period between 1901 and 1911, she visited Macedonia multiple times where she painted folklore motives and people. With the beginning of the Balkan Wars, she volunteers in Serbian army and here artistic style became more patriotic. In 1915 she painted the Dushan Bridge in Skopje.

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.
