The retrospective exhibition of Veljko Stanojević presents around 50 works of art from the collections of the Museum of
Contemporary Art, the National Museum, the Belgrade City Museum, the Historical
Museum of Serbia, as well as from private collections.
Veljko Stanojević, a protagonist of Serbian modern painting between the two world wars and a modernist of classical formation, was an artist of clear artistic profile and in accordance with the art principles that dominated the European art of the first half of the 20th century. His modernism of the neorealist form occupies a prominent place in the Serbian history of modern art, especially the phase of his formative period during the 1920s and the 1930s, when he took more active part in the European art scene. Regardless of his beginner’s attempts to find himself through the Impressionist expression, the basic thread that ran through Stanojević's painting was a realistic component that represented distinctiveness and a signifying characteristic of his visual expression. He reached the zenith of his artistic career with a “clean“ style of modernist classical formation, and concluded it with a phase of “curly“ painting with strong coloring. The expressiveness of artistic messages in his works was reflected in the substantial underlying concept of classical profane and sacral subjects, as well as in the stylistic constant of realism. A realist of emotional views according to orientation, an intimist according to perception and the sense of reality, a chronicler of modern civic and an interpreter of traditional, historical and sacral themes, Veljko Stanojević will be remembered as an artist who was at the same time one of the most important protagonists of civil modernism, but also a “classic“, a keeper of the painting tradition in an era of contemporary artistic tendencies.The exhibition in the Gallery-Legacy of Milica Zorić and Rodoljub Čolaković will last until April 6th 2015, every day from 10a.m. to 6p.m., except on Tuesdays.
