Alexandru Ciucurencu (Romanian, Post-Impressionism, 1903–1977)

alexandru ciucurencu painting

The first painting, which I personally prefer, shown here by Alexandru Ciucurencu is based on a passage from a poem by renowned Romanian author Mihai Eminescu, “Imparat si proletar” (Rulers and Workers) the author of the article doesn’t specifically say what passage of the poem and I am unfamiliar with this work so there is not interpretation or speculation here, although I wonder if there is something else behind it. Actually find it intriguing to know only half of the information, then to know all of the info or none at all – but maybe that’s just me. You can read the article in romanian at this link. Other language speakers I recommend using BING search engine translator – better then google – still not sufficient for accuracy – but will give you enough of an idea.
