Instances of Romanian painting between 1950-1990,” curated by Ruxandra Garofeanu in collaboration with Dan Haulica and Paul Gherasim will open at the National Library.


The exhibition will gather more than 600 pieces of art and over 300 artists. It will be divided into several sections: paintings of Andreescu, Luchian, Ressu, Darascu, Ghiata as well as paintings belonging to expressionist, cubism or postwar Romanian artists.

The paintings will be brought from 24 national museum acrossRomania, from private collections from both Romania and France and several Bucharest and regional workshops.

The exhibition will be held at the National Library from September 27 until December 2. Most of the paintings will be also be presented in an art book that can be bought from the exhibition.
