Object:Kafana scene al fresco
Description:A group of seven smartly dressed men sitting around a small round table on a terrace in the open. One of them, with bowler hat and cigarette, is talking to an eighth man who is standing next to the table, holding a violin and laughing into the camera. His equally elegant dress suggests he belongs to the group. On the table are eight glasses, a jug of red wine, a soda bottle and a plate of cakes. Another male party in the background consists of men in uniform. It is a sunny day in spring or autumn, since some of the men wear their coats. The hills around Belgrade are seen in the background.
