The painting that originates from the legacy of Ljubica Cuca Sokić is the proof of lasting friendship between these two artists. It was acquired from painter’s heirs, Gatalović family from Belgrade. Pavle Beljanski always wanted to make Bogdan Šuput’s paintings a part of his collection, and that, along with many donations (paintings, drawings, photographs) from Cuca Sokić and Šuput’s heirs, earned him a place in the Memorial Collection.
