Object:Studio portrait of Mrs. Ristić and her son Marko
Description:Full-length shot of a young woman and a child. The woman, who is wearing a long dress, is sitting on a padded armchair. The small child, dressed in a white tunic, is standing beside her on the chair, leaning against her and embracing her from behind. Painted canvas backdrop.
Comment:Marko Ristić (1902, Belgrade – 1984, Belgrade) was the son of the lawyer, judge and president of the Court of Appeal, Mihailo Ristić, and grandson of the wealthy Serbian liberal statesman, diplomat and historian Jovan Ristić (1831–1899). He became a writer and was a representative of Serbian modernism before shifting toward Surrealism. Already his grandfather Jovan had lived a rather "middle-European", bourgeois, rich lifestyle. Marko became a communist and the first ambassador of Tito's Yugoslavia in Paris. In this picture he is portrayed with his mother, who was the daughter of the lawyer and famous amateur photographer Marko Stojanović.
