The National Museum of Art of Romania

ARTmobile is a project born of the Museum’s commitment to make art and particularly its collections more accessible to wider audiences, including the visually and hearing impaired.

The museum’s website was completely restructured to incorporate new features. Forty works in the permanent galleries have now both written and aural descriptions (in Romanian). These are complemented by fifteen theatrical presentations and seventeen short films which interpret works of art in Romanian Sign Language. Paintings by Nicolae Tonitza, Corneliu Baba and Paul Signac are also presented through tactile diagrams, whose exploration is guided by written and aural descriptions.

In 2017 tactile diagrams for eleven more works will be added, making this the most comprehensive attempt to offer various audiences the possibility to enjoy art in an entertaining and engaging way.

The free app ARTmobile - A handy museum is now available in Romanian on Google Play and iTunes !

Romanian Modern Art Gallery

Romanian Modern Art Gallery

The Romanian Modern Art Gallery tells the story of Romanian art from the mid-nineteenth to the late twentieth century. Representative works by Theodor Aman, Nicolae Grigorescu, Ioan Andreescu, Theodor Pallady among others, illustrate connections with contemporary French painting while those of M.H. Maxy, Marcel Ianco, Victor Brauner trace the contribution of Romanian art to the European avant-garde of the 1920s and 1930s. Early sculptures by Brancusi reveal the master’s will to break away from academic tradition and find a way of his own.

Theodor Pallady Museum

Theodor Pallady Museum

The museum brings centre stage a core selection of paintings by Theodor Pallady. Together with over 800 prints and drawings from the artist’s Parisian years, these are part of the Serafina and Gheorghe Răut collection, donated to the Romanian state at the end of the 1960s. The collection also comprises French, Dutch, English and Spanish paintings, European furniture and sculpture and a host of various objets d’art which speak eloquently about the manner in which Romanian inter-war intellectuals tried to emulate general trends.
