The Fine Arts Museum from Grigore Antipa Street, no. 2, invites the public to appreciate the work “Eva” (bronze), author Frederic Storck (1872 – 1942), a work that is part of the museum’s sculpture collection.

“Carol’s younger brother and son of Karl Storck, Frederic Storck, a member of an elite artistic family between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, make a special mark in modern Romanian art. both through its creation and through the involvement in the socio-cultural life of the interwar period. Formed in Bucharest and Munich, Frederick Storck founded the famous group “Artistic Youth”, which would include the most important modern Romanian artists, and together with his wife, Cecilia Cuţescu-Storck, formed a family of intellectuals and artists. or set the tone for innovations in the cultural landscape of the time.
Academic style and realist-naturalism also rooted Frederic Storck in the early period of creation, so that in adulthood he would move away from these formulas, going on a more accentuated stylization of forms.
Like his brother, Carol, he worked on allegorical statues, such as Adevărul, Industria, Agricultura, in Carrara marble, but also portraits of cultural and political personalities: Ion Heliade Rădulescu, Alexandru Macedonski, Mihai Eminescu, Anastasie Simu, Carol I or Regina Elisabeta . The sculptor’s favorite material was marble, probably for the nobility with which he managed to represent his models and for its durability. Carol and Frederic Storck’s art is a starting point and a landmark for the further development of Romanian sculpture, which will then embrace many directions and styles. “
