Complex reasons for collecting artistic work, unless they are inherited or received in some other ways, is a cultural phenomenon, which is present with an individual primarily as a specific way of personal affirmation, which could be qualitatively transformed, through time, into something new and of public importance. Collection of Doctor Branko Ilić can be classified into that category and repeats rather frequent story about an intelligent and ambitious provincial, who, by wishing to reach higher social level, became fascinated by the works of art. Therefore, this romantic enthusiasm, despite numerous social and political obstacles, he managed to accomplish enduringly.
The collector's work, which lasted for more than half a century, represented the most important part of his life. The course to becoming a person that admires and collects works of art was set in his youth. An ambitious grammar school student from Novi Sad, and later, the student of medicine in Budapest, successfully climbed the social ladder having no doubts that he belonged to an upper class. On that path he discovered another side of his personality – the love of art.
