Ceausescu. Another Story

Romanians and especially Westerners collect Ceausescu. But what was Ceausescu himself collecting during the glorious “Golden Epoch”? What was his taste in art? For a short time, in the heart of the capital, Art Safari hosted the most prominent works from the Ceausescu collection permanently housed in Primăverii Palace. Luchian’s scented blossoms, Bancilla’s novel portraits, Petrascu’s impasto still lifes, Ressu’s monumental peasants and Iser’s tempting odalisques were part of the “Ceausescu. Another Story” exhibition.
