Dirk Filarski was a traveling artist who spend weeks abroad capturing cities and their ambiance. In the fall of 1937 he travelled to Yugoslavia where he visited Dubrovnik, Trebinje, Kotor, Frogir and Mostar. Today Mostar is a city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The works he created during these travels in 1937 and 1938 are the final ones where Filarski signed with D.H.W. Filarski. From Spring 1938 and onwards he only signed his works with his last name, leaving out his initials.
