It's Time To Visit A Museum - Art Museum - Exhibition Of Naive Art

in #artlast year

Today I continue, with pleasure, the journey through the Palace of Culture in Iasi. Viewing a new exhibition hosted by the Art Museum. This time it will be a less ordinary exhibition but also a painting exhibition.

Exhibition Of Naive Art

I do not know if naive art is known, practiced and accepted in all countries. Naive painting is first and foremost a painting made by children, but this is not considered art. In Europe and especially in the area of Eastern Europe and the Balkans, naive painting is considered an art form and is practiced by painters, especially from the rural area.

Within the Museum of Art was hosted an exhibition of naive art that was initially opened in Bucharest, in 2018: SIAN (International Fair of Naive Art). I visited it and wish to introduce you too.


Now, let's try to say why this kind of art is called naive art.


This is my opinion, I did not study and did not inform, I try only a logical deduction from what I saw in the exhibition.
First of all, it is observed that the exhibiting artists do not have studies of painting, studies of fine arts.


It is obvious that the compulsory canons are not respected, ie the proportions, the perspective, composition ...


... and yet, it is called art. We have to respect that.

What do I think?

I think this important art form is ... the message! The naive, popular artist wants to convey something: an accident, a wish, a criticism, things happened and observed around him.


Although the paintings do not follow the painting rules, they still have something very attractive, namely: the color! All these paintings are colorful, decorative and this explains why many choose to buy and display them in their homes.




As you probably noticed, all the paintings have themes related to the village life. This is because the vast majority of naive painters in Romania are from the rural area, although sometimes they have unique themes for their paintings. As in this case, this picture that I like very much and which is a family tree!


All the paintings we put here were painted by Romanian artists. For a comparison, now I show you a painting by a painter from Italy. Totally different from what the Romanians paint. Because, probably, in Italy there is no longer a rural life as it is in Romania, a more primitive life. In Italy, villages are smaller cities now.


This is how the exhibition halls look. Quite simple and not too spectacular.




I usually started this series of postings with the image of the Palace of Culture, the home of these exhibitions. Now I wanted to change the order, in order not to become boring this repetition.




I hope that I managed to bring something new to your attention and that I managed to show the most representative examples of naive painting in Romania.

I love visiting museums and it has been a while since I last visited one. Thank you for sharing this museum from your part of the world. I don't believe art should have rules to follow as it is how we see the world. I especially love the painting with the wedding scene. I makes me feel an afternoon glow due to its colors and has the warmth of the country side.

Also, I like to see exhibitions, I like painting. Maybe there are no rules but there are categories and classifications. Academic painting ... naive painting ...

Oh wow! I used to work in a gallery with naive art for a few years surrounded by this type of paintings.
There is no rules that apply to those. The author simply paint what the feel and how they feel and see the world around. Most are out of proportions and unreal. And those colours! I love it :)

@tipu curate

My wife worked for several years in an art gallery and so I saw a lot of paintings. You described the naive art perfectly.
Thanks for the curate, I hope will be productive for you.
I'm also among the curators but today I wasn't inspired at all.

ops.. didn't work the first time..

Wonderful pictures friend

Thank you, you are very kind.

You are welcome friend

I really like the pictures, they are colourful and simplistic and yet realistic as well. I used to do naive writing which has turned into esoteric writing, but that's not a bad thing...

Yes, that's how you say it. I didn't hear about naive writing, I didn't think it could be done voluntarily.

The paintings are truly beautiful. One thing I must say, they are very different from Southeast Asia like Bangladesh.
Thanks for sharing!

Of course, there is no way resemble with those in Asia. The way of life differs greatly.
