The exhibition "Pallady's Paris"


Under the theme of "Pallady 150," the National Museum of Art of Romania organized four exhibitions dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the birth of painter Theodor Pallady (1871-1956), one of the most important Romanian artists. The exhibitions aim to present unique aspects of his artistic creation related to the works in the MNAR heritage.

The exhibition "Pallady's Paris" at Casa Melik (Theodor Pallady Museum) presents a selection of the artist's works depicting images of Paris, where Pallady intermittently resided from 1890. Some of these works come from the donation made by Gheorghe Răut to the Romanian state in 1968, which includes the 1,200 pieces housed in his Parisian apartment, including 800 drawings by his friend Pallady, on the condition that they be exhibited in Casa Melik in Bucharest.

Răut's friendship with Pallady began in Paris in 1924 when the two became neighbors in a 17th-century building at Place Dauphine No. 12, where the artist occupied the attic with two rooms, while the banker occupied the rest of the building. Pallady lived there until 1940 when he permanently returned to Romania.

The Theodor Pallady Museum

Address: 22 Spătarului Street.


Visiting hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 10:00 - 18:00.

Closed: Monday, Tuesday, January 1st, 2nd, and 24th, Easter  Holidays, the first and second day of Pentecost, May 1st, August 15th, November 30th, December 1st, 25th, and 26th.


Theodor Pallady Museum houses the collection of Serafina and  Gheorghe Răut. It contains a substantial nucleus of canvases  signed by Theodor Pallady, as well as over 800 drawings and  engravings from his Parisian period. These were donated by the  Răut couple to the Romanian state in the late '60s, along with their  own art collection, which includes paintings from the French, Dutch,  English, and Spanish schools of the 16th-19th centuries, small  ancient and Renaissance sculptures, textiles, furniture pieces,  oriental ceramics, and other decorative art objects. The entire  ensemble is representative of how Romanian intellectuals during  the interwar period emulated the collecting pursuits of collectors worldwide.

The building that houses the museum, also known as Casa Melik, was constructed in the second half of the 18th century. It is one of  the oldest and most beautiful merchant houses in Bucharest and  the only one open to the public. The house is named after its most important owner, Iacob Melik, a supporter of the revolutionary  actions of 1848 and author of the work "L'Orient devant L'Occident." He was responsible for renovating the house in the second half of  the 19th century and preserving traditional elements such as the  balcony on the upper floor, the interior wooden staircase, and the  wide eave roof.
