Object:Studio portrait of Ana Jovanović
Description:Full-length profile shot of a young woman with her head slightly turned towards the camera. She is wearing a dark, high-necked, floor-length dress and an elaborate hat adorned with flowers. A painted canvas backdrop is creating the impression of the scene being set on steps leading into a garden.
Comment:Ana Jovanović (1888, Kragujevac – 1956, Belgrade) was Mihailo P. Jovanović's daughter. Mihailo was an attorney and served as Minister of Justice (1903–1905) and as head of the Court of Cassation (as of 1908). In 1908, Ana married Captain Pantelija Ž. Jurišić (who later became General of the Royal Army), who was the son of the prominent Serbian natural scientist Živojin Jurišić, who, among other things, was the founder of the Natural Science Museum of Serbian Land (which is now the Natural History Museum) and the Serbian Botanical Society.
