 Paciurea's Chimeras.(Dimitrie Paciurea) - Apollo - HighBeam Research   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Dimitrie Paciurea was born in either 1873 or 1875 in Bucharest; his early aptitude for art secured him a place at the School of Arts and Crafts there.
Paciurea's first and only completed public commission came in 1905, when a National Exhibition, modelled on the Parisian Universal Exhibition, was planned for 1906 to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the arrival of Carol I in Romania in 1866.
Paciurea's chimeras are elemental chimeras: water, air or earth; they are bird chimeras: eagle or owl (the Night chimera is represented as an owl with a female face and breasts, similar to the Eagle chimera) or simple chimeras.

 Culture - Fine Arts - Dimitrie Paciurea
As custodian of the Aman Museum, which he became in 1909, Paciurea had the inspiration to transform one of the Museum tenancies into a studio (there artists and later on grantees of the "Paciurea" Prize, to be first awarded the very year of the maestro death, had for many years spent creative hours).
Immemorial mythical visions would haunt Paciurea's imagination to the point of having him sublime the reality, by unusual symbolic representations or by populating it with phantastic creatures.
Paciurea showed the same inspiration and good mastering of the representation in his portraits of (B.P. Hasdeu, 1907; Gheorghe Petrascu, 1907; Stefan Luchian, 1908; Beethoven, 1912; Ibsen, 1920; Iancu Brezianu, 1921; Prof.

When Rodin proposed to Brancusi to become his assistant, Brancusi refused and his answer was "In the shadow of a big tree, another tree cannot grow.” Brancusi was one of the first sculptors to experiment with abstract art.
His sculptures became progressively smoother and less figurative, until only the barest outline of the original subject was left, venturing even farther away from figurative sculpture than his countryman and contemporary Dimitrie Paciurea.
Brancusi produced a series of sculptures in metal called Bird in Space.

In the same period of time, a renewal of the sculptural idiom came through resuming the ties with timeless local traditions, by Dimitrie Paciurea (1873-1932) and Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957).
Paciurea, the first Romanian artist endowed with a gift for monumental sculpture, resorted to the mythological and fantastic vein of popular traditions (chimeras, sphinxes).
Brancusi, settled in Paris in 1904, who restructured the whole 20th century art and became the founding father of this centuries abstract sculpture.

From this trip on the historical vertical, into the horizon of the Neolithic world whose spirit is preserved in folk art, the artist returns to the present, managing to restore, in his works, the bridges of communication so affected by the routine and excesses of the technological era.
If Brancusi revitalized the abstract expression of archaic art, Dimitrie Paciurea heads for those figurative and fantastic mythological representations that have functions in the old symbolical repertories but which still prove to be pertinent.
With Gheorghe D. Anghel, Romanian 20th century sculpture regains the purity and severity of the Byzantine form, controlled by a spirit fed classical ideals.

As the great Brâncusi did, Dimitrie Paciurea (1873-1932) began his activity with traditional works to which neither the art and vocational school attended in the adolescence nor the academically workshops of Bucharest and Paris succeeded in printing its sober character.
Beside the bust of the painter Stefan Luchian there are exhibited sculptures representing grotesque-fantastic creatures, "Water's chimera", "Head of a faun", destined to suggest us, the world's absurdity
