Romania - Nicolae Grigorescu

Nicolae Grigorescu, 1838-1907, was one of the founders of modern Romanian painting. He painted the church of the Zamfira monastery, Prahova county, and the church of the Agapia monastery, Neamt county. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts - Paris. In 1877 he was called to accompany the Romanian Army as a "frontline painter" in the Romanian War of Independence. During the battles at the Grivica Strongpoint and Oryahovo, he made drawings and sketches which later used in creating larger-scale works. In 1889 his work was featured in the Universal Exhibition in Paris and at the Romanian Atheneum.

This Miniature sheet shows the painting “Woman on the Beach” by the famous Nicolae Grigorescu, was sent to me by my friend Daniela.
