Object:Studio portrait of Artillery Lieutenant Dragutin K. Kušaković
Description:Upper body shot of a young man in military uniform.
Comment:Dragutin K. Kušaković (1875–1930) made his career in the Yugoslav Army. In 1922 he became director of the Historical Section in General Staff and in 1925 a Professor at the Military Academy. Photograph kept in photo album no. 22369, which belonged to the Zorić family. Svetozar Zorić (1853, Titel–1931, Belgrade) studied mechanical engineering and worked in Western Europe before returning to Serbia, where he became an Honorary Professor at the Technical University of Belgrade after working for the national railway company. He was very much interested in painting and encouraged his niece Nadežda Petrović and his daughter Milica Zorić in their artistic ambitions. Both became very famous artists. The photograph was a gift to a (female) relative of Svetozar Zorić's.
