Petar Lubarda (Serbian Cyrillic: Петар Лубарда; 27 July 1907 – 13 February 1974) was a Serbian painter. Lubarda was member of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (SANU). Although born in Montenegro, before his death Lubarda left a letter in which he demanded that he should be identified on every occasion as being of Serbian nationality. This letter is now deposed in the Archives of SANU. His most preferred subject was the historic 1389 Battle of Kosovo, which Lubarda painted in various formats in more than 30 versions.
He was born in Ljubotinj, near Cetinje, Principality of Montenegro. He studied painting in Belgrade and Paris. From 1932 until his death he lived in Belgrade, with exception of period 1946–1950 when he was professor at an art school in Herceg Novi. His work is inspired by Serbian history and Montenegrin landscape. He won many awards, in Europe, Brazil and on Tokyo Biennale.
