Object:Studio portrait of the sisters Nasta and Ljubica Hristić
Description:Full-length shot of two young women dressed in matching, ornamented, floor-length dresses. Props in the studio and a painted canvas backdrop are creating the impression of the scene being set on a cliff by the sea. The older girl is sitting on a chair in front of a wooden fence behind which the other girl is standing, having placed her left hand on the seated girl's left shoulder. The girl standing is holding a straw hat decorated with flowers in her right hand.
Comment:Probably granddaughters of Nikola Hristić and his wife Juliana, née Hadži-Jovanović, who was a descendant of Toma Vučić-Perišić. Nikola Hristić (1818, Sremska Mitrovica – 1911, Belgrade) was a Serbian politician and statesman and held many important public positions such as, e.g., judicial and police clerk, Mayor of the City of Belgrade, Minister of Internal Affairs and Prime Minister. Nikola and Juliana had twelve children.
