The perfection of Paja Jovanović’s painting may best be seen in the extraordinary heliogravure made after the lost painting Furor Teutonicus or the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest. The monumental oil painting (24 square meters) made in 1899, was an apotheosis of the Germanic conquering power. This representative painting of an event from the history of Germanic tribes, a genuine masterpiece of Academic Realism, earned the artist a series of international awards. However, after it had been awarded the gold medal of the Salzburg Art Association in 1909, any trace of the painting was lost.
