The Milena Pavlovic Barilli Gallery is a memorial museum with an art collection, personal objects of art, library, family heirlooms and archive about the famous artist. It holds an opus of 900 works of art – 136 oils, 51 pastels, 286 temperas and aquarelles, 6 prints and 415 drawings.
Milena Pavlovic Barilli Gallery is located in her family home in Pozarevac. At her mother Danica’s request it was opened in 1962 in the home of the Pavlovic family, who were well known merchants in Pozarevac, with family connections to the Serbian royal dynasty of Karadjordjevic.
Wishing to preserve the memory of her only child and world famous artist, on June 24th 1962, upon bequeathing the house to the town of Požarevac, Danica Pavlović uncovered a memorial plaque which reads:
„Milena’s Home – to her talent, dilligence and youth, Her mother.“
Milena’s Home Foundation – Milena Pavlovic Barilli Gallery was founded to preserve the memory and to respect the wish and request of her mother
Danica Pavlovic to bequeath the property and the works of art to Serbian people and to preserve the bequest as a whole.
Miodrag B. Protic, an artist and art critic, provided an all out support to Danica to open the Gallery and thus preserve Milena’s artistic treasure.
Pozarevac was given a gift and a mission to keep the memory of Milena, of her works and of her life safe.
For visitors Gallery is open every day except Sunday from 8 am to 3 pm.
