Nicolae Darascu

Nicolae Darascu (1883 – 1959) was a watercolorist whose works reflect Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist currents. Over time, he was increasingly drawn to the expressiveness reminiscent of Matisse, leading him to reduce his color palette to red, yellow, blue, and green, achieving chromatic harmony through their juxtaposition.

There was a period when he seemed obsessed with the mystery of Venice, the hills of Balchik, and the poetry of Bucharest's boulevards.

Towards the end of his life, he achieved a rational mastery of expression, painting large compositions with female nudes or landscapes.
