Object:Group portrait of the Horstig and Bojović families
Description:Framed studio photograph of a group of ten people. There are three seated women and one seated man. Another three man, one woman and two girls are standing. All of the women are dressed in dark, floor-length dresses. Two of the men are wearing plain clothes, while the other two are dressed in uniforms with insignia of honor and rank. The girls are both dressed in sailor dresses.
Comment:Sitting (from left to right): Zorka Horstig, Bosiljka Bojović (née Horstig) and probably Pavle Horstig (Paul von Horstig) and his wife. Pavle moved to Serbia after the Franco-Prussian War, where he became representative of Krupp and allegedly also one of the founders of freemasonry in Serbia ('Pobratim'– i.e., blood brother – Masonic Lodge). Jelena Bojović is standing next to them. She later married the architect Rade Mihailović. In the second row: Zora Horstig, née Pavlović (daughter of Mihajlo Pavlović, who was the owner of one of the greatest textile factories of his time in Belgrade and also Governor of the National Bank), her husband Kosta Horstig, an unknown man, Marta Bojović, who was educated in Great Britain and later married twice (first Miloš Čarapić and then Milan Dimitrijević). The last person standing on the right is Marta's and Jelena's father Colonel Radivoj Bojović.
