Romanian painter Georgeta Năpăruș studied at the Nicolae Grigorescu Institute of Fine Arts in Bucharest in the 1950s, when strict Realist Socialism influenced her initial formation. Often described as weavings, her intriguing compositions with crowds of characters and symbols include various influences and references, from mediaeval miniatures, Egyptian frescos, or Romanian folk costumes. Figurative but also abstract, her elegant works with minced brushstrokes applied in a methodical way, signs and an organic integration of colour are reminiscent of Gustav Klimt or the Flemish primitives.
Georgeta Năpăruș participated in national and international art shows and fairs, including at the São Paulo Biennial, Valparaiso Biennale, Museum of Art Cluj, Romania, Dalles Room, Bucharest, Romania, Emst Michael Winter Gallery, Hamburg, the Romanian Museum of Literature, Bucharest, Romania. She received several prizes including The Prize of the Sophia Triennale in 1982, the Raffaello Prize in 1985 and the Special prize of the Jury of the Artist Guild in 1991.
