Press Release 15th of May 2017: 45 years since the opening – as a museum – of the Atelier House Gabriel Popescu

Today, 15 May, 2017, the leadership of the Dâmboviţa County Council attended to the event dedicated to the 45th anniversary of the opening – as a museum – of the Gabriel Popescu Workshop House. The Atelier House has been recently rehabilitated through a Norwegian-funded project.

During the ceremony dedicated to this event, merit diplomas were awarded to the people who have been involved over time in the preservation of the great artist Gabriel Popescu, the first of Romania’s greatest gravors. On this occasion, President Alexandru Oprea thanked everyone for their commitment and expressed showing his respect, appreciation and support for the promotion of the Romanian culture. The program included other artistic moments, both a photo exhibition on the history of the Gabriel Popescu Atelier House, and a demonstration in the art of engraving by artist Andrei Scărlătescu.

Ovidiu Cârstina – Manager of “The Royal Court” National Museum Complex, representatives of the Project Implementation Unit, staff of Dâmboviţa County Council, historians and architects, students and local people attended the event as well.

Alexandru Oprea, President of the Dambovita County Council: “I am honorred to address some words about an artist and a museum which little known by the general public and the Romanian artistic environment. As a part of the “Royal Court” National Museum Complex since 1969, the Gabriel Popescu Atelier House was opened to visiting on 15 May 1972, that is 45 years ago. Designed by French architect Alexandre Clave, based on the artist’s sketches, between 1902 and 1905, the house is a unique buildingof this sort in Romania, as it was also a workshop from the very begining.

Gabriel Popescu, the artist was born here, in Vulcana-Pandele, in 1866, in a large family. He was the son of the priest of the village. Although he was preparing to follow his father’s profession, his talent proved to be defining. On a large scale, our artist, the first Romanian engraver in the field, is the founder of the Romanian engraving school. In this capacity, he was the holder, for several decades, of the engraving chair of the School of Fine Arts in Bucharest. A both solitary and discreet man with a deep knowledge of the human nature, expressive and impeccable in execution, Gabriel Popescu let the art to talk for him and that was the why he didn`t gain a larger notoriety. Thanks to his exceptional qualities, he received several distinctions and medals at various exhibitions. He was appreciated and encouraged by His Majesty, King Carol I of Romania, whose portrait he engraved in the year of the royal jubilee – 1906. He mastered all the engraving techniques and showed a particular interest in each of them. He also excelled in other fields – stamps, medals and plaques making. He rests in peace in his hometown near the church where his father served. The shadow cone, installed after the artist’s death in 1937, was followed by a revival once the Vulcana – Pandele Museum opened its door to public in 1972.

A new approach to promoting the museum, was made when it was included in a financing line within the EEA Financial Mechanism 2009-2014, as the Project “Restoration and consolidation of the Gabriel Popescu Atelier House, Vulcana-Pandele Commune , Dâmboviţa County”.

Thus, the restoration of the Gabriel Popescu Atelier House and the reconstruction of his house have brought the museum into a tourist and scientific circuit and should be the impetus for reaching high visibility parameters on the Romanian cultural and scientific market. Those who enter the museum enter another universe where they have the opportunity to develop themselves, learn and study, recreate, develop different activities out of the daily routine. We therefore recommend to visit the museum and discover the engraving artist at his home.

Celebrating 45 years of existence as a museum, we can only admire the way Gabriel Popescu Atelier House returned to a new life. The tourists who will reach this place will be able to approach this unique universe. “

I invite the people from Dâmboviţa County and not only form our County to visit the Gabriel Popescu Atelier House, a historical monument of a special importance for the cultural heritage of Dâmboviţa.
