BiographyEdit

 
Letter by Petar Lubarda; he request that the biographical information written in the letter must be used in all of his future biographies.

He was born in Ljubotinj, near Cetinje, Principality of Montenegro. Lubarda's father was an officer of the Royal Yugoslav Army who was killed by the Yugoslav Partisans, which left a mark on Lubarda's career and upbringing.[1] He spent a part of the war years in a German prison camp.[2] Lubarda self-declared as a Serb[3][4] and sent a letter demanding that this information be included as a part of his biography in upcoming art catalogues[5] as well as demanding that his work be presented as a part of Serbia's pavilion.[6]

He studied painting in Belgrade and Paris. From 1932 until his death he lived in Belgrade, with exception of period 1946–1950 when he was a professor at an art school in Herceg Novi.[7] His work is inspired by Serbian history and Montenegrin landscape.

His most preferred subject was the historic 1389 Battle of Kosovo, which Lubarda painted in various formats in more than 30 versions.

Lubarda won numerous awards including the prestigious Herder Prize, Medal of Honour by Calcutta Art Society in 1968 and many other awards in Europe, Brazil, New York City and Tokyo Biennale.[8]

The house used by Petar Lubarda and his wife Vera located in Senjak, Belgrade, was turned into an art gallery featuring notable works by Lubarda and personal items.[9][10]
