The exhibition will run until June 14. The 50 pieces, which represent the evolution of Serbian art, mark artistic European events that took place between 1850 and 1950.
Among the attractions are works by the first celebrated woman painter in Serbia, Katarina Ivanovic, plus contributions from Serbian artists who created some of their art in the Banat region of Romania, such as Konstantin Danil and Nikola Aleksi. The majority of the pieces in the exhibition are part of the Collection of Paintings of the 20th Century. Many depict artists who have contributed to shaping the universal artistic language by constantly getting involved in important contemporary European artistic movements such as expressionism, cubism, secession and symbolism. The National Museum in Belgrade is the most important museum in Serbia. Its collections encompass 400,000 works of art, archeology and numismatic pieces.
