Ormós Zsigmond (1813-1894), the founder of Banat Museum, started buying the objects of art after 1857, when, because of political persecutions, he sold his fortune inherited from his uncle and autoexiled to Italy. He studied the history of Italian art in the 14-19th centuries, he visitied museums, libraries, archeological excavations and the studios of the artists in this country and in the West of Europe, he took part in public auctions of objects of art. A few works bought first were sent to the museum in Budapest, then he tried making up a personal collection following mainly the picture of Venice, come out of the studios of the famous masters' disciples. continue
Permanent exhibitions
The modern Romanian arts collection of our museum provides insight into the work of painters and sculptors, the development of schools and trends all over the country beginning in the 19th century. The collection includes masterpieces by "academists" from the 19th century (Sava HenŇ£ia, Constantin Lecca), as well as classic paintings by Theodor Aman, Nicolae Grigorescu and Ion Andreescu. The latter authors are also noteworthy for their ambition to open up for impressionist intentions acquiring bases of the Barbizon school. continue
The museum's collection counts about five hundred European paintings, being one of the largest and most important collections of European art in Romania. The items originate primarily from a private collection formed in the latter half of the nineteenth century: that of the Ormós Zsigmond (1813-1894). continue
In the 18th century, in the halls of the Local Council and in the Palace of the county there were already portraits of emperors, commanders and local dignitaries. Some of these were signed by some masters from Vienna or from Budapest, and some by local artists. Sava Petrovińć, Konstantin Daniel, Melegh G√°bor and later, in the second half of the century, Johann W√§lder or Ferenczy J√≥zsef were called to finalize the portraits in the council hall of the town-hall's palace.The town rarely purchased works of the artists from Banat. Thus, at the begenning of the 20th century two compositions of big dimensions were bought and laid down at the museum: "The Wedding from Cana" (a copy after Veronese) of Brocky K√°roly and "The Colonization of the Schwabs in Banat" of Stefan J√§ger. continue
The collection of old art has been constituted since 1928 and contains especially icons on wood and painting on canvas of a local origin. It was rhythmically completed with acquisitions, donations and transfers, especially after 1960, counting nowadays more than one thousand of pieces. Chronologically integrating between the 17th and the 19th centuries, the collection thus completed has a heterogeneous shade, including icons originating in Wallachia, Transylvania and isolated in Maramuresh, Russia, Ukraina and Greece. continue
