The recently-inaugurated Museum of Recent Art has aroused much enthusiasm, and, one needs to say, also many controversies. This is a private museum, modest in size, but with strong ambitions, including architectural ones. The ‘recent’ part first refers to the collection’s temporal coverage: Romanian art, since the post-Stalinist period until today. International art is however also present, mainly through temporary exhibitions. The museum is much more open and accessible than most old-type museums in Romania, and includes a library, as well as other spaces for culture and the city.

96. Visiting a Clever, Cheerful Man. The “Anton Pann” Memorial House in Bucharest

Old Bucharest remains visible to this day in the irregularity of many streets and in the architectural typology of some houses. Next to the Stelian-Lucaci church, somewhere close to Calea Călărași, there lies one of those pieces of town where one can still find, in the path of streets and property limits, the 19th-century specific urban model: small houses, showing off plaster decorations, not aligned to the street, built on garden plots, whose green can be seen from the pavement, reminiscent of what used to be the old neighbrorhoods, namely a mixture of countryside and town.

Anton Pann’s house in the Lucaci parish, that we are speaking of, on the street which now bears his name (it used to be Bull’s Street), is a small and simple house itself, modestly decorated, with an intimate courtyard; yet different from the neighbouring ones, as Anton Pann would move his printing shop here, a rather improvised one, but in which he managed to print his most important works.
