OccupationSerbian icon painter

Petar Pilić (Serbian: Петар Пилић; 1815-1890) was a Serbian icon painter.

Petar Pilić was a sought after icon painter who had a studio in Senta where he taught students the art of painting.[1]

Pilić's work can be found in the Chapel of St. Archangel Gabriel at the Serbian Orthodox cemetery in Senta. On the wall of the altar space, the scene of the Resurrection was painted by Petar Pilić during the time that Novak Radonić and Aksentije Marodić were honing their skills there. The marble iconostasis partition is decorated with icons made with the oil on canvas technique, the work of Pilić's assistant Novak Radonić, who became a prominent representative of romanticism.[2]The cultural monument is a significant example of sacral buildings of smaller dimensions, complemented by exceptional achievements of religious painting, thanks to the talent of Pilić.

Also, Petar Pilić worked on commissions together with Nikola Aleksić and occasionally with former students.
