Peđa Milosavljević was born in 1908 in Luznice near Kragujevac. He finished high school and the Faculty of Law in Belgrade, and he studied painting privately with Jovan Bjelic, while he trained in Paris.
As a law graduate, he worked for several years in the diplomatic service in Paris, Madrid and London. He published articles on art in “Umetnički pregled”. In addition to the book of essays “Between Trumpet and Silence”, he also wrote several plays, among which the most famous is “Zopir” from 1966. As a painter, he was a member of the groups “Dvanaestorica” and ” Šestorica”, and he became a regular member of SANU in 1976.
He is the recipient of the Grand Prix for painting at the International Exhibition in Paris in 1937, the Seventh of July Award, the October Salon Award, ULUS Golden Plaque and others.
Together with his colleagues Petar Palavičini and Branko Popović, Jovan Bijelić formed the group “Oblik” in 1926, joined by: Petar Dobrović, Živorad Nastasijević, Toma Rosandić, Veljko Stanojević, Sreten Stojanović, Sava Šumanović and Marino Tartalja as founding members, and later this group is joined by: Ignjat Job, Zora Petrović, Ivan Radović, Mate Razmilović, Risto Stijović, architect Dragiša Brašovan. This group consisted of already established visual artists.
He entered our art scene in 1929 in the midst of various trends, but he did not follow any of them. He called his style “man’s style”. He explained his love of drawing with a brush: “The good side of this technique is that it requires synthesis.” painterly thinking”. In a word, Peđa Milosavljević transposed into his artistic reality everything that interested him as an artist, from Parisian roofs and Dubrovnik to nudes and animals. However, he did not silence the social reality as it was either. Peđa Milosavljević is an example of a renaissance personality rarely seen in our country, with an attitude that he did not hide for the sake of personal interest.
Academician Predrag Peđa Milosavljević died in 1987 in Belgrade.
