Born in Petrovaradin 1888, died in Novi Sad 1965. Pavle Ruzicka was important Serbian painter from Vojvodina province. He painted frescoes in the Novi Sad city hall in 1907. There is a record of an art exhibition at the Art School in Novi Sad from June 1934 in which we can see that Ruzicka painted several paintings with motives from Ohrid. He probably visited Ohrid in the early 1930s but there are also drawings from Ohrid from 1940.
