The choice of historical  figures and themes that marked the second phase of Paja Jovanović’s work was  largely determined by cultural and political circumstances in the Kingdom of Serbia. In 1903, after Petar I Karađorđević,  Karađorđe’s grandson, had risen to the throne, the painter renewed his  connections with Serbian royal circles and the new dynasty.

The painting depicting the  sleepless night of preparations for the liberation of Belgrade  in 1806, fuses his predilection for painting historical events and  glorification of historical figures from Serbia’s past.
