The bust of Petre Stanescu

 

Bust-Petre-StanescuThis sculpture was made using a photo of him and the model of one of the decesead brothers.
Considering the fact that this work had to be installed on a high pedestal, the neck is slightly asymmetrical and the whole bust slightly elongated to give a feeling of perspective.
The critics from Bucharest of that time have compared the work of that with some of the works done by El Greco and Zurbarans.
The Bust of Petre Stanescu was exhibited in 1976 in Bucharest at the comemoration of Brancusi and was later replaced with a copy in bronze, and in 1992 was bought by the National Museum of Art of Romania
