CRITICAL REVIEW


        Although he sometimes gravitates towards metaphorical composition (for instance, in Hiroshima), most of his efforts are directed towards the analysis of the human figure. The reason for this option is the desire to evoke personalities that marked the Romanian civilization. When speaking about their moral attitude, as well as about the way they finally represent the human figures, such works are indebted to the patterns provided by the ideals of classicism.
