Object:Studio portrait of composer Stevan Mokranjac
Description:Half-length frontal shot of a seated man. He is wearing a dark suit, glasses and many insignia of honor.
Comment:Stevan Stojanović Mokranjac (1856, Negotin – 1914, Skopje) was a Serbian composer and music educator. His work was essential in terms of recording and organizing Valach Serbian folk poetry, which only existed in the oral tradition and can be regarded as representative of the contemporary Serbian national spirit at large. In 1899 he founded the first independent music school in Serbia with Stanislav Binički and Cvetko Manojlović: the Serbian Music School in Belgrade. This photograph was the model for the portrait which is printed on the current 50 Dinar banknote.
