"The eclectic collection has been gathered, over the last decade, with great attention and dedication. Some of the works were inherited, some were acquired in auctions in Romania, and many directly from artists' workshops. Each art piece represents an important chapter of my life and I can confess that one of my favorite artists is Corneliu Baba, and as far as my passion for sculpture goes, I lean toward Ion Irimescu, whom I see following the footsteps of Paciurea, and toward Guguianu, whom I sense to be a successor of Brancusi. I have confidence that the works auctioned on 4 October will offer value to life and, why not, to the homes of the collectors they will reach," the collector said as quoted in the release.
The 120 works are exhibited until 4 October at the Cesianu-Racovita Palace and can be admired for free, Monday to Sunday, between 10:00hrs and 20:00hrs.
