Paul Joanovitch (1859-1957)

He was born in Versecz, near the Romainian border to Serbia, to a father who was a well established photographer in the town.  The young man followed in the footsteps of his father and in April of 1877, Joanovitch was admitted to a painting class at the Academy of Vienna.  Two years later, he found himself in a class with Christian Griepenkerl and then in a special school for painting with  Leopold Carl Muller, another Orientalist. 

Although Vienna remained his home, he made several trips to Paris where he met his Hungarian friend Mihaly Munkacsy and won a gold medal at the Exposition universelle in 1900.  Unlike other Orientalists, Joanovics derived his inspirations not from the Middle East, but from the European territories such as Albania, Romania, and Montenegro that had fallen to the hands of the Turks (M. Haja and G. Wimmer, Les Orientalistes des Ecoles allemande et autrichienne, Paris, 2000, p. 274).
