Peć Patriarchate by Mirjana Mihać Srbinović

Mirjana Mihać (1924–2006) is an artist who has been creating and working throughout her life, and yet she has remained outside the already mentioned main currents of highly modernist painting and is unexplored from the point of view of art history. Immediately after finishing her studies, she was hired as an assistant, and then as a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts. At the beginning of the sixth decade of the last century, she worked equally in the field of graphics and painting and built her own artistic narrative of intimate, symbolic content. Although she never stopped painting, her increasing confinement in the hermetic circle of family, friends and students is noticeable. This is shown by the fact that she had only three solo exhibitions during her lifetime. We were also bequeathed several of Mirjana’s paintings of Serbian medieval monasteries, where, in addition to the Patriarchate of Peć, there are also the Church of the Mother of God in Studenica, Gračanica and Kalenić, which testify to the “primordial, promised Paradise” with which Mirjana aspired all her life, as an artist and as a person.
