About her personal situation

“The first association one has upon hearing her name, is that she was just the daughter of a very famous father. However, she did claim some personal credit in the Serbian cultural history. Although she was more famous as a painter, Mina also deserves her modest, but well earned place in our literary history.”

“Indeed, she was her father's sweetheart, but not only his. All of his friends loved her dearly, and it is well known that Vuk's house in Vienna was visited by some of the most learned and most influential people of that time, like Jernej Kopitar, Branko Radičević, Đura Daničić, etc. This great father was ready to give up on his own needs, only to provide for his sweetheart’s proper education. He was paying for her private language, music and painting lessons. Besides German, her mother tongue, and Serbian, her father’s native language, she learned French, Italian, and English, and was also familiar with the Russian language."
