Modern artistic representations”.

The opening ceremony, which took place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday 19 February in the exhibition space of the Residence of the Princess Ljubica in Belgrade, was a splendid formal occasion and was attended by many members of the Serbian capital’s art-loving public. The exhibition will remain open until 3 March 2020.
