in detail

The European Art Gallery, lodged in the Kretzulescu wing, displays 300 art pieces representing the main artistic schools of Europe active between the 14th and 19th century. Starting with the Late Gothic and the Renaissance and continuing with the Mannerism and Caravagism, till the Baroque and Roccoco style, the Italian art pavilion is represented by the works of masters like Domenico Veneziano, Jacopo Bassano, Bronzino, Jacopo Tintoretto, Luca Giordano, Orazio Gentileschi, Jacopo Amigoni.

The German art collection illustrates the German version of the International Gothic or the Northern Renaissance and Mannerism, being reperesented by remarkable works of painters like Bartholomäus Zeitblom, Lucas Cranach the Elder and Hans von Aachen. The religious fervor and the passionate temper characterizes the Spanish painting, features which can be seen in the works signed by El Greco, Francisco Zurbarán, Alonso Cano, Antonio Pereda. The realism, the mistery of chiaroscuro and the pitoresque of life-style scenes are tipical for the works of the Flemish artists (Bartholomäus Spranger, Pieter Brueghel the Younger, Pieter Paul Rubens, David Ryckaert III) and Dutch artists (Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, Jan Davidsz. de Heem).

In the French section there are works made between the 16th and the 20th century. The most well known painters of this part of the Gallery are Claude Monet, Paul Signac, Alfred Sisley, J.B.Oudry, Nicolas de Largillière, Gaspar Dughet, Joseph Parrocel. The French sculpture collection holds works by Auguste Rodin, Antoine Bourdelle, Jules Dalou and Camille Claudel.
