The “Dinu and Sevasta Vintilă” Museum

Nicolae Grigorescu, Flori de nalbă, ulei pe carton, 300 x 170

Nicolae Grigorescu (1838 – 1907)

Little shepherd

This last period of creation is “the most personal and, therefore, the most representative phase of the painter’s creation. Relying exclusively on his own imaginative effort and his own vision, he produced a second revolution in Romanian art, a revolution that this time goes beyond the aesthetic and technical conventions of plein-air. By substantially renouncing the mimetic function of art, Nicolae Grigorescu, in the so-called white period, recovers the origins and symbolic foundations of any creative endeavour. Thanks to the technical artifice of generous inclusion of light in the plastic image, the painter dissolves traditional arrangements/conventions intended to represent the real, He discovers new ways of representing forms derived from life, reached by a higher degree of abstraction” – Cristian Velescu, Romanian still life from the 19th century in the context of becoming European of gender.
