Object:Zorka Vlajić with a child
Description:Half-length portrait of a seated woman holding a little boy on her lap. The woman is wearing a skirt and a dark blouse. The boy is dressed in short trousers, tights and a dark coat. He is holding a stick with both hands.
Comment:In 1919 Zorka Vlajić, née Milojković, became president of the Maternity Association, founded in 1904. The boy in the picture is probably her son, Božidar Vlajić. Božidar Vlajić (1888–1974) became a famous politician (member of the Yugoslav Democratic Party) in interwar Yugoslavia. After WWII he remained in Great Britain as an emigrant (the Communist Party, which came into power, banned the Democratic Party; its members were persecuted). He was one of the founders of the "Democratic Alternative".
