The works of Milisav Marković, a painter who was born and used to live and work in Knjaževac in the late 19th century, represent a separate part of the museum’s fine art collection. As a self-taught painter he used to work a lot in Eastern Serbia, especially in the Timok region and for the needs of the Timok eparchy. He painted a large number of icons for rich families, and he is also well-known because of numerous portraits of significant people of his time.
