Atelier de Front. - MNAR Bucharest

Romanian Artists in The Great War
The exhibition (24.08.2017 - 28.01.2018) brings centre stage the saga of The Great War through the first-hand experience of many Romanian artists. The stories they tell are those of ordinary people - soldiers, prisoners of war, refugees. Their works, full of human compassion, depict the drama with a touching directness.
The exhibition design, inspired by front-line trench maps, vividly suggests atraumatizing war atmosphere and strengthens emotional reaction to the message of more than 120 works by some of the most notorious Romanian inter-war artists such as: Nicolae Tonitza, Ion Theodorescu-Sion, Camil Ressu, Ștefan Dimitrescu, Oscar Han, Dimitrie Paciurea, Ion Jalea, Cornel Medrea.
