From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Milo Milunović (1897-1967) was a distinguished Montenegrin painter. He dabbled in both Impressionism and Cubism.


Milo Milunović was born in Cetinje, Montenegro but educated in Shkodër, Monza, Florence under the apprenticeship of Alberto Giacometti, and later Paris. He joined the Montenegrin army in the World War I, and from 1919 to 1922 lived in Paris, where he became acquainted with the works of Cezanne. He spent 1923 in Prcanj where he painted frescoes in the local church. From 1924 to 1926 he lived in Zagreb, Paris, and later Belgrade where with two colleagues he founded the Belgrade Academy of Arts. He painted his most successful works between 1926 and 1932, most of which were impressionist.


His works were characterized by a rationalistic approach, both to composition and space. Anti-illusionistic devices were used in the representation of space. Milunovic's art can sometimes be seen as abstract, other times as impressionistic, and even sometimes as Fauvist.
