Уметничка слика –„Пејзаж“- современа уметност, автор Љубодраг Маринковиќ Пенкин
Short story (description):

The picture depicts Landscape. In the foreground of the picture are two figures of girls – painted with no real elements, shadow-like, painted in a straight position, moving to the interior of the picture.
In the background of the picture are 4 houses, in different sizes and detail, depicted not completely only with one wall, a window or just a roof.

In the third plane of the picture are three tall white poplars that are near the end of the picture and on the right side, there is a pine cypress.
In the background are a few trees and a hint of a distant mountain. The rest of the picture is heaven, calm, with uniform strokes shaped, clear, without any clouds.
The whole picture is without real details, it is more of an author’s inner feeling like an uncertain dream or memory of a distant event.

Use: The painting is displayed in the permanent exhibition section of the Bitola Museum and is important for monitoring the development of culture and creativity in Bitola and affirmation of the NI Institute and Museum of Bitola.
