Ksenija Radulovic, the director of Theatre Museum of Serbia: These are the notes from the forewords and afterwords of all the books written by Jovan Cirilov. Enumerating his activities, nobody has ever added that, among all other things, he also sketches caricatures of his contemporaries. They could not help but notice that since Cirilov, usually during the meetings, when he is bored or while he is preparing to speak makes the sketches of the people who surround him. Theatre Museum of Serbia believes that this side of Jovan Cirilov is worth being presented as well. (2009)
