FEKETE (NEGRULEA), Iosif







CRITICAL REVIEW

        Monumental conception, of heroic human form influenced by the sculpture of Bourdelle. In the case of the Monument of Aviators in Bucharest, the artist imprints his figures with an intense dramatic tension suggesting in an exemplary manner the idea of sacrifice.
