This picture is considered the first semi-nude photograph in Serbia. Olga Ilić, later Ilić-Hristilić (1880, Thessaloniki – 1945, Belgrade), was a famous Serbian actress. She was born the illegitimate daughter of Marija Gašparović and a Frenchman. Mother and daughter moved to Niš after Olga’s father had died. In Niš Olga started her acting career at the age of fourteen and pursued it as a travelling actress and playing at different theaters throughout the Balkans (e.g., Belgrade, Novi Sad, Leskovac, Niš, Skopje).
