Teodor Kračun - Теодор Крачун

Though Teodor Kračun lived in the enlightened 18th century. his biography cannot be reconstructed in full.Aside from the well-known fact that Kračun, the '' scatterbrain '', fell from scaffolding while working in Sremski Karlonci, little else is knwon about his life, that icons were being placed on the sculpted, wooden iconostasis.The sarcasm of his contemporaries was probaly a result of Kračun's bohemnian lifestyle, which wasn't necessarily unknown to Serbian artists, even in the 18th century.
