WELCOME TO BUCHAREST MUSEUM OF ART COLLECTIONS

One of the great museums to visit in Bucharest, the Art Collections Museum is right on VICTORIA AVENUE, No 111, the main route in the Romanian capital, not far away from the Royal Palace. There are many art collections to enjoy while visiting the museum, all of them exhibited in different rooms.

The museum houses many interesting collections. We are talking about artists or art collectors who would donate their collections to the Romanian state in time. A fine story is that of Simu collection. Simu was a noble in the dawn of the 20th century in Bucharest who had a museum of his own. He was very proud of it, as Krikor Zambaccian, another great art collector wrote down in his notes. Simu’s museum was demolished by the communists and the great works he had gathered were sent to different museums in Bucharest, like this one. So, you can see at the Art Collections Museum collections signed by Corneliu Baba, Iosef Iser, Elena and Anastase Simu of course and so on.

PAINTINGS AT ART COLLECTIONS MUSEUM BUCHAREST

A part of the building that now houses the Museum of Art Collections in Bucharest was built in the dawn of the 19th century by a local noble, called Costache Faca and it was, then, sold to a Greek businessman Grigore Romanit. It was a period when the Greeks still had great influence in the Romanian politics. Romanit created a real house for guests decorating the rooms with rare marble, amazing chandeliers and furniture brought from India or Spain. This is the reason the building has been known as Romanit House. But, in 1834 Grigore Romanit died and the whole building which is now the museum was managed by the lord Grigore Dimitrie Ghica. It was a civil building.

HISTORY OF ART COLLECTIONS MUSEUM IN BUCHAREST

A new lord, Alexandru Dimitrie Ghica( 1834-1842) decided to use the nowadays Museum or Art Collections as headquarters of his government. In fact, it was here where he was the judge for different judiciary causes. The Romanian state as we know it today, hadn’t been formed yet and the lord’s powers were great enough under Russian or Turkish authority, so we can say the the building on Victoria Avenue was the center of power. And, indeed, the state will buy the house from Romanit’s sisters and change its name to Administrative Court of Romanian Country.

Indeed, after the first union between Moldavia and The Romanian Country, Romanit House became the headquarters of the Ministry of Finance under Alexandru Ioan Cuza rule. Later, in 1883, the nowadays building became what it is. Under the command of the architect Nicolae Cerkez, who died in 1927, in 1883, there were built the two building bodies that nowadays give the whole museum the “U” style. This was the moment when a great building became the great museum of art collections you can visit today.
