Corneliu Baba

Corneliu Baba, another famous Romanian painter, lived in the 20th century and is best known for his portraits. Most of his works stayed in Romania and many local museums exhibit at least a painting of Baba’s. He painted the portraits of actress Lucia Sturdza-Bulandra, composer George Enescu, writer Mihail Sadoveanu and poet Tudor Arghezi. Inspired by Rembrandt, Baba used to prepare his portraits by doing numerous sketches of the hands and eyes.
