Text provided by the organizers of the exhibition:
The exhibition is part of a larger project conducted in 2013 by the National Museum Brukenthal in partnership with Art Imaging from Prague, offering to the public the opportunity to enjoy – both in galleries and at home – the masterpieces of Romanian art through reproductions displaying a high degree of fidelity.
The Art Imaging products are high resolution giclée reproductions printed on Hahnemühle fine art canvas and treated with UV protective varnish, being guaranteed to preserve the original look for a minimum of 70 years.
Giclée is a neologism introduced in 1991 by printer Jack Duganne to define digital, inkjet-printed artwork reproductions. The term "giclée” is employed by artists and galleries to refer to high-quality reproductions. Established in 1584, Hahnemühle is a German company with a long tradition of excellence among leading manufacturers of paper or cloth enhanced with layers of chalk and kaolin, specially created for inkjet printing.
Organized as an "exhibition-in-exhibition", In the mirror introduces a new way of promoting the National Museum Brukenthal’s Romanian Art Collection through very faithful replicas, thus offering an alternative approach to interior decoration and reviving the practice of popularizing the unique Romanian art.
The exhibition offers "mirrored" artworks by Nicolae Grigorescu, Nicolae Tonitza, Ştefan Luchian, Gheorghe Petraşcu, Mişu Popp etc.
