Pero Popović (Prijedor, August 18, 1881 — Sarajevo, February 1, 1941) was a painter and drawing teacher. After finishing high school in Sarajevo, he went to Vienna and completed three semesters of philosophy, and then went to Prague and studied painting with Vlaho Bukovac and the Czech František Ženjišek. In Sarajevo in 1907, together with Todor Švrakić and Branko Radulović, he organized the first exhibition of local painters in Bosnia and Herzegovina. He was employed at Velika realka in Banja Luka in 1908. His students were Milivoje Uzelac, Vilko Gecan and Božidar Nikolić. He moved from Banja Luka to Sarajevo in 1930 and remained there until his death — on February 1, 1941.
