Icons from Banat at Peasant’s Museum

Irina Nicolau Hall of the Romanian Peasant’s Museum will host, on Wednesday, December 15, 2010, starting 3 pm, the opening of the “Icons from Banat” exhibition, according to a press release from the institution. The icons on display were found by the writer Toma George Maiorescu in the latter half of the 1960s following systematic research in two villages, Stinotari and Carbunari, on the Gheorghe Mountain (the Banat Mountains). Many of these depict scenes from the Old Testament, which had not been approached, to that date, by folk artists. Most of the icons in this collection – the oldest dates from 1838 – are painted on glass.

The exhibition is open until January 7, Tuesday to Sunday, 9 am to 5 pm. Entrance is free.
