The visitors will have the opportunity to see 24 masterpieces of one of the greatest masters of Serbian – 22 works come from National Museum of Pancevo, while the two works are part of the collection of the House of Jevrem Grujic.
The exhibition will officially start the new season of the House of Jevrem Grujic, a museum of history, art and diplomacy, from where there comes a reminder that the exhibition of Predić’s work was last organized in Belgrade 20 years ago.
In addition to portraits and religious compositions, several studies present to the visitors how this extraordinary painter built his large compositions. The works were created in the period from 1886 to 1945 and almost 60 years of the great painter can be traced back at the exhibition. Its beauty are particularly prominent portraits of the couple Hadzi-Pavlovices, who could be said to have represented the pinnacle of his portrait painting, then the portrait of King Alexander Karadjordjevic, the icon “St. Panteleimon heals the blind” that the painter did for the granddaughter of Jevrem Grujic.
Home of Jevrem Grujic is closely connected to the life and artistic oeuvre of Uros Predic, and amicable ties between artists and members of the family were manifold. This is the reason why the National Museum of Pancevo has decided to showcase the artworks of this great Serbian master in the House of Jevrem Grujic.
