I remember the first time I entered the National Museum of Art of Romania in Bucharest. Prior to the visit, in 2011, I knew nothing about Romanian art. Please forgive my ignorance. Maybe we should stop and think for a moment about culture, about the culture bearers and how some cultural items and events becomes worldly known and other things not.
I think, that with Romania, there are many things that would deserve our attention, to be discovered and appreciates by more people. Romanian art, for sure deserves some attention.
The reaction I had as I was discovering the pieces or art, the painters and the museum, was like a child at Christmas. I was so happy and it felt like I was opening a treasure box.
After that inspirational visit I started to be more curious and I learnt about Romanian artists.
