Object:Studio portrait of Ana and Pantelija Jurišić
Description:Full-length shot of a couple, both of whom are standing. The man is dressed in a uniform decorated with the rank of a 2nd class Captain and adorned with other insignia of honor and rank. He is carrying a sabre and a scabbard. The woman is wearing a plaid dress. A painted canvas backdrop is creating the impression of the scene being set outdoors on a terrace with steps leading into a garden.
Comment:Ana Jurišić, née 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 (1881, Mačva – 1960, Belgrade), who later became General of the Royal Army. He 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 of the Serbian Botanical Society.
