Abstract

Modern art emerged in Romania under circumstances foreign historically, politically, and culturally to those prevailing in the industrialized West. Moreover, the artists responsible for creating an originary Dada and a singular form of Constructivism, among other modern expressions, were perceived as foreigners in their own land. The present study offers an analysis of the aesthetic, ethnic, and social contexts that resulted in a singular history of modern art in Romania, one that would play a decisive role in the evolution of modern art in the West.
