ION JALEA MUSEUM is one of the few cultural edifices in our country dedicated exclusively to sculpture.
The institution is housed in a beautiful Brancovean style building at the beginning of the 20th century. Inside the museum are exhibited over 200 of superb works donated by the sculptor in the 1969 year and his family, in 1984, after his death.
On the ground floor and upstairs are exhibited original works and models, made in different materials and techniques. The themes are varied: allegorical works, front sketches, portraits, monumental compositions, etc. In front of the house, on the cliff, is the defining masterpiece of Ion Jalea: "Arcaş resting".
Made in a variety of materials: gypsum, bronze, stone or marble, his thematic cycles include allegorical, religious or mythological scenes, war or work scenes, nudes, portraits, peasant faces culminating in his monumental works, all past through a personal filter that avoids easy and happening in favor of a clear, classifying form.
