History The region was named after Serbs, who migrated in 1752 to the Russian Empire from the Habsburg Monarchy (mainly from the territory of present-day Vojvodina, a province of modern Serbia, and other areas of the Pannonian Plain, which are today part of Croatia, Romania and Hungary). Russian authorities gave these Serbian settlers a land, which thus acquired its name, New Serbia. *(1.)

oil works

painting pastels most notably in the years 1943, 1944, and 1949. He then began producing oil works painted in so-called 'subdued colors' from 1945 to 1952, marking the "gray phase" of his work. 1953 is considered to be the turning point in Konjovic's painting style. He works began to be defined by more pure intensive colors and glow, leading to the period dubbed the "coloristic phase." New artistic orientation culminated and was to characterize the works of the "associative phase" (1960-1984). At that time Milan Konjovic engaged himself in the work of the artists' colonies of Vojvodina. In 1985 began the "Byzantine phase" with works treating various themes from Byzantine history.

dramatic quality

work Sremac's period spent in Niš was his most productive period. During that period, he published ''Božićna pečenica'' (1893), ''Ivkova slava'' (1895), ''Vukadin'' (1903), ''Limunacija na selu'' (1896), ''Pop Ćira i pop Spira'' (1898), ''Čiča Jordan'' (1903), and ''Zona Zamfirova'' (1906), all characterized with local colouring, realism, humour, and satire. Because of their high dramatic quality, many of these were later dramatized, with ''Ivkova slava'', being the most successful. Sremac's characters are usually small merchants, clerks, priests, artists, and just simple folk in small Serbian towns. A realist and sharp observer, he was able to point out the changes sweeping Serbian society into a new era. Some of his stories dealing with vanishing way of life that had persisted for centuries have an unforegetable nostalgic flavor. His depiction of the patriarchal atmosphere of Serbia of his time is done in a humorous vain, but never mockingly, except when he ridicules his political opponents. Sremac's short stories reveal his love for the slowely disappearing "old way" of life. The plots are placed in his native Vojvodina, Bačka in particular, Belgrade, and mostly, southern parts of Serbia. But it is his humor for which Sremac is best known and remembered.
