IONESCU-VARO (Varik?), Vasile







CRITICAL REVIEW

       
        Naturalist and figurative sculpture. Conservatory vision. He achieved the effigies of some Romanian culture personalities, but also the monumental sculpture in the characteristic manner of the public monuments of the first half of the 20th century. He prefers the bronze, which advantages his portraitist abilities.
