By Events | No Comments

On December 2017, at the Fine Arts Museum, 2, Grigore Antipa Street, the public may see  the work of Tache Papatriandafil (1903 – 1951), „Pont-Neuf”, belonging to the paintings collection.


“In less than 50 years of life, Tache Papatriandafil succeeded in developing as an artist and individualizing himself among the painters who worked in the most effervescent autochthonous, interwar period.

He did not graduate from the School of Belle Arte, but only attended the courses, as well as those of the Free Academies in Bucharest, being the student of Arthur Verona or Petrascu. At the time he is known as one of Tonitza’s most skillful students, who do not forget about the artistic chronicles. His debut was consumed in 1924 at the Official Salon, and the following years captured successes, being awarded one in a row in 1926, 1927 and 1928.

In 1929, when he was awarded a scholarship, Papatriandafil arrives in Paris where he studies painting and drawing. Returning to the country, he will continue to participate in the artistic events of the time, being present both on the salons of the Salon, but also on those of the Young Artist. In addition, in 1931, he took part in the formation of the “Our Group” association, being a member of the wave of young artists, including Phoebus, Margareta Sterian, Paul Miracovici, Aurel Kessler and others.”

afisSmiles from…the Golden Age


Starting with 11th of November 2015, at the Museum of History and archaeology, Independence Monument Park, the public may visit the exhibition named Smiles from —the Golden Age. Actual cultural reinterpretation of the communist epoch


Organisers: Museum of National History and Archaeology Constanța, «Gavrilă Simion» Eco-Museum Research Institute Tulcea and European Association INTERAXE.

Financer: National Cultural Fund Administration


What do organizers say:

”The project addresses the youth, especially these who are taught about communism in school. The formal history lessons cannot provide a comprehensible view of daily life in communism. Moreover, usually, this subject is a predilect one for elders and not for youth. Younger people never lived in those circumstances and know almost nothing about them. Sometimes they learn about it from elders talks, but these are just subjective glimpses of the whole picture.

The project team aimed to create an atmosphere closer to that belonging of the communist epoch through the display of original documents and items.”
