Woman and the Mirror by Mladen Srbinović, 1960.

Mladen Srbinović started his academic career as one of the first assistants at the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade, where he retired as a full professor at the then Faculty of Fine Arts and an academician. He was a member of the Graphic Collective, the group “Independent” and one of the founders of the “December Group” (together with Miodrag B. Protić, Lazar Vozarević, Lazar Vujaklija, Stojan Ćelić and others). The Legacy of Olivera Radojković Čolović contains 34 of his works, mostly graphics (lithography, etching, copperplate, aquatint) and drawings, as well as three pastels and one oil on wood. The largest number of represented works is from the fifties and sixties of the last century, when Srbinović created an extensive series of graphics. They also show the transformation of the author’s artistic manuscript on the topic of the female nude, from a plastic, clearly defined image of a woman with accentuated curves, to a schematic, spiritual figure of a woman. There are several such works in the Collection, which includes the work “Woman and the Mirror” (1960).
