Nicolae Grigorescu Painting

Nicolae Grigorescu (1838 –1907) was a painter who was instrumental in the development of modern Romanian painting. In 1861, he moved from Romania to Paris with the help of a scholarship and was able to study at the École des Beaux-Arts. While studying abroad, he was exposed to the Impressionist movement and began adopting the style into his own paintings. Eventually Grigorescu brought this knowledge back with him to his home country, however he continued to travel and show his paintings throughout Europe.
