Bragadiru) Remus Niculescu, Grigorescu si primii sai critici, , in Studii si cercetari de istoria artei, no. 1, Bucharest, 1958 One of the founders of modern Romanian painting, Nicolae Grigorescu spent his formative years in Paris, after receiving a scholarship in 1861. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and in the studios of Charles Gleyre and Sebastien Cornu, both known for academic historical subjects, but as soon as 1862 he fell under the influence of the painters working in Barbizon. The appeal of plein-air painting, the simplicity of the subject matter freed of the confines of academic rules, and the closeness to nature, offered him new means of expression. The influence of Corot, Millet, Daubigny, would define his style and his preference for realism for the remainder of his career. From 1868 on Grigorescu participated in the yearly Paris Salon exhibitions and the Exposition Universelle, thus gaining international notoriety and collectors' appreciation. Petru Verussi (1847-1886), the sitter of the present portrait, was a friend of Grigorescu and a fellow painter, who apprenticed with Sebastien Cornu and later returned to Romania to become a professor at the Fine Art School in Iasi.

Description:
Nicolae Grigorescu (Romanian, 1838-1907) Bull Cart signed 'Grigorescu' (lower right) oil on canvas 19 x 23¾ in. (48.3 x 60.3 cm.) Considered the founder of modern Romanian painting, Nicolae Grigorescu is best known for his impressionistic depictions of his country's rural peasants. Grigorescu began his career, however, by painting church icons and a fresco cycle for the Agapia monastery. These early works captured the attention of Romania's future Prime Minister Mihail Kogalniceanu who later helped Grigorescu secure a scholarship, allowing the young artist to travel to Paris where he immersed himself in the city's vibrant cultural life. Arriving in Paris in 1861, Grigorescu gained entry into the École des Beaux-Arts where he studied with the Academic painter Sébastien Cornu. He soon abandoned this traditional course of study, however, to follow the innovative teachings of a group of avant-garde artists who would later become known as the Barbizon School. After moving from Paris to the village of Barbizon near the forest of Fontainbleau, Grigorescu embraced the work of Jean-François Millet with its emphasis on rural subjects. In Barbizon, Grigorescu experimented with the technique of plein-air painting, a drastic departure from his earlier veristic manner of painting. Barbizon proved a formative experience for Grigorescu as he continued to focus on peasants in natural settings upon his return to Romania in 1869. In Bull Cart, Grigorescu combines the lessons he learned in Barbizon with a lyrical rendering of a Romanian peasant on a hay-wagon being pulled by two formidable looking cattle. Grigorescu's energetic brushstrokes create a dynamic composition of pulsating blues, greens, grays and yellows that distinguish his work from the more staid paintings of Millet. Visionary paintings like Bull Cart led to Grigorescu's success at the Paris Exposition universelle of 1867, the Paris Salons of 1868 and 1869 and the numerous exhibitions of his work held in Bucharest throughout the 1880s and 1890s.
