The Museum Pavilion of Art Safari 2017 is dedicated to the “Luchian and Independents” exhibition occasioned by the Luchian Centennial (1916-2016). The exhibition comprises twelve of the artist’s works, hosted by over 20 museums and private collections, in the attempt of recreating the artistic atmosphere of the 19th century-end, early 20th century.
It will be the largest Luchian exhibition in Romania in the past 50 years, providing an overview of the Romanian painting innovator’s work and of the secession group that took shape around him.
The structure of the exhibition is made around Stefan Luchian’s exceptional work that was linking the Romanian painting to the Western European models from Munich or Paris.
The exhibition will also reflect the “Independents” young artists’ activity, who joined Luchian in surprising the society of that time: Vermont, Artachino, Grant, Satmary, Pascaly, while evoking at the same time Nicolae Grigorescu’s influence on the young painters.
Paintings on display: “Anemones” from a private collection; “Roses” from the Prahova County Museum; “Flower vase” from the Arad Museum; “Self portrait” from the Prahova County Museum; “Girl portrait” from the Ciucea Museum Cluj; “Flowers” from the Bacau Art Museum; “Under the tree” from the Prahova County Museum; “Still life” from the Art Museum Cluj-Napoca; “Cornflowers and daisies” from the Arad Museum; “Apples” from the Mures County Art Museum; “Old man portrait” from the Mures County Art Museum and “Pierrot” from the Lucian Pop art collection.
