MNAR manager complains about massive artworks’ restitution


During a meeting with Bucharest cultural institutions’ representatives on Wednesday, the General Manager of Romania’s National Art Museum (MNAR), Roxana Theodorescu, invited the senators with the Culture Commission to visit the museum as soon as possible as the institution’s heritage was not protected and, due to the restitution of the artworks, they might not have anything left to see soon.

“I invite you to visit the museum as quickly as possible, because as fast as we are restituting the works of art,  you won’t have anything left to see in the near future. In recent years, this heritage has been far from being protected,” said Theodorescu, at the Parliament Palace, according to Agerpres.

She added that MNAR has restituted 2,000 works of art since 2000, and that the museum is to restitute other 253 ones in the very near future, while other several hundreds are under litigation.
