MASTERPIECES OF BRUKENTHAL COLLECTION

The evolution of the Brukenthal Art Gallery over time saw the enrichment of its collection through donations and acquisitions, the addition of an important collection of modern and contemporary Romanian painting but also regrettable episodes such as the 1948 confiscation of a number of 19 paintings from the Brukenthal Art Gallery and their transfer to the National Museum of Art of Romania in Bucharest (under the centralizing policy of the Communist state) or the theft of 8 paintings in 1968, of which only 4 were eventually recovered, decades later.
The European Art Gallery of the Brukenthal Museum opened in 2007, by the inauguration on the second floor of the palace, of a special section of the expositional circuit that shows all 23 paintings recovered from the 1948 confiscation and the 1968 theft. This exhibition was specially conceived to underline the importance of the recovery of the original fond of the Brukenthal Painting Collection.
