Nicolae Tonitza

1886-1940 Romania/Post-impressionism

 

Brief Biography-Nicolae Tonitza was born in Bârlad, Romania in 1886. He studied at the Enescu National University of Arts in Iași and the Munich Academy of Fine arts before examining the art of Paris for three years. He fought during WW1 and was taken prisoner until 1918, which led to ill health. After the war, he worked in Journalism, commenting on political and art issues. He was very critical of Nicolae Grigorescu's political views and art. Tonitza achieved success with his paintings and murals in churches; however, his finances always remained wanting. His health failed dramatically during the last few years of his life, and he died in 1937.
