Deeply involved in making genre paintings, field work and incessant travelling in search of appropriate ethnic motifs, during the first decade of his career as an artist, Jovanović visited Caucasus, Italy, Greece, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Metohij and Kosovo. Numerous sketches and drawings have been preserved in which the painter captured scenery, faces, his encounters with ancient civilizations, cities and myths, and in which he made a record of remnants and traces of the past. Many of these drawings were later incorporated as details into his large historical compositions.
