Lazar Drljača

Lazar Drljača (1881–1970) was a Yugoslav painter. Born in Blatna. He was initially an expressionist,[1] but turned to impressionism.[2]

He passed his examination for Fine Arts in Vienna in October 1906, and in 1911 was invited to participate in the International Exhibition in Rome, after which he moved to Paris to attend art school, and worked in the Louvre copying the old masters, Titian and Leonardo da Vinci, sometimes to commission. From July 9, 1914 to 1919 little is known about his life but a note on a picture records that he was interned in a camp in Sardinia.
