Colors of postwar Bessarabia cross the Prut River

A painting exhibition entitled “The colors of the “thaw”. The Bessarabian Village in the painting of the 1960s” was mounted on Thursday at the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant in Bucharest, IPN reports, with reference to InfoPrut.

The event is a cultural project to promote famous Bessarabian painters, carried out by “Arbor” Association for Culture and Arts and the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant, in partnership with the Embassy of the Republic of Moldova in Bucharest.

The exhibition includes works of 14 masters of the brush from the left side of the Prut, famous names that contributed to the renewal of the plastic language of the moment.

The project discovers “the artistic activity of painters from Chisinau and highlights the innovation efforts in the context of the “Khrushchev Thaw” of the 1960s.

The first to change their stylistic landmarks were the painters who made their debut in the 1940s, at the famous schools of fine arts in Bucharest and Iasi, asserting themselves in the postwar period. These are Mihail Grecu, Valentina Rusu Ciobanu, Ada Zevin, Glebus Sainciuc, Igor Vieru and other masters of the brush. Their audacity was penalized by the cultural censors of the time, their works being criticized and removed from exhibitions. However, the changes in pictorial thinking in Bessarabia were irreversible. At that time the art school in Chisinau was established, said the Embassy of the Republic of Moldova in Romania.

The exhibited works illustrate the originality of art of the Republic of Moldova, which strongly asserted itself half a century ago, displaying decorative expressiveness and interpretation of subjects in an elevated poetic key, with symbolic images and influences from folk tradition.

The exhibition “The colors of the “thaw”. The Bessarabian Village in the painting of the 1960s” is open to the public until May 19, 2024.
