Exhibition of Monumental Art: Octavian Smigelschi, the promoter of a national artistic vision

Location: Museikon, Alba Iulia
Opening: January 25, 2018, 2:00 pm
Organized by: Octavian Smigelschi Pictor Cultural Association, Alba Iulia National Museum, Brukenthal National Museum
Curator: Dr. Alexandru Constantin Chituţă

Text from the curator:

The exhibition brings together, for the first time in presentation at Alba Iulia, the monumental cartons made by the painter Octavian Smigelschi between 1902-1903 for the Metropolitan Cathedral in Sibiu and the Blaj Cathedral, as well as secular creations, original documents and photographs. The cartoons made by the Sibiu painter Octavian Smigelschi delight in refinement, compositional richness and dimensions, uncommon on the scene of Romanian painting, displayed as an unusual exhibition event for the public in our country.
On the occasion of the exhibition opening, there will be also a book launch for the three volumes of the book "Transylvania and National Painting / Octavian Smigelschi 1866-1912"
