Street named after Milena Pavlović Barilli

    Milena Pavlović Barilli (b. Požarevac, Serbia, 1909 – d. 1945, New York City, USA) was a modernist painter of Serbian-Italian origin. She was born in Požarevac from a short-lived marriage between teacher Danica Pavlović and Italian composer Bruno Barilli. She attended the art school in Belgrade, as well as the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Shortly after finishing school, she began to exhibit independently in 1928, first in Belgrade and Požarevac, and then in European capitals – London, Paris, Rome. She moved to New York in 1939, where she was doing illustrations for Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. She died in a horse-riding accident and was buried in Rome. During her lifetime, she completed more than 300 works, as well as many sketches and drawings. Most of these works are exhibited in museums in Požarevac, Belgrade, and Rome.
