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 HenĹŁia, 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

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
