The details (from wikipedia)


Đorđe Jovanović (21 January 1861, Novi Sad – 26 March 1953, Belgrade) was a Serbian sculptor and a full member of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts.


Jovanović was born in Novi Sad, where he spent the first three years of his life. Then, his family moved to Požarevac. He studied at Kragujevac, where he obtained his baccalauréat from Grandes écoles in 1882.

In 1884, he obtained a state grant to pursue his post-graduate studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, where he started studying painting and sculpture. He also studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.

After completing his studies in 1887, he lived between Munich, Paris, and Belgrade. In Paris, he improved his art with Henri Chapu and Jean Antoine Injalbert. In 1889, at the World Exhibition in Paris, he won a prize for the "Gusle" and then, in 1900, at the World Exhibition in Paris, he won the greatest award for the "Kosovo Monument".

He was very prolific, and many of his works can be seen in Serbia, and in particular in Belgrade. Sculptor and Cartoonist Jovan Pešić (1866-1936) was one of his early students in Novi Sad.

Jovanović married Emma Victoria Scheitler on 26 September 1889. They had two sons: Mirko (1892–1915) and Branko (1895–1939). After Emma Victoria died in 1928 near Munich, Jovanović married Marguerite Robert (1879–1965).
