Romania's leading art museum was founded in 1948 to house the former Royal Collection along with those of various other museums in Bucharest.

The Museum´s Website mentions an exhibition on the Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi (1876 -1957), held 1999, comprising thirteen sculptures from the Museum's collection. Brancusi, arriving in Paris by 1904, had learned from Rodin but deliberately tried to escape from his influence, in order to develop his own style. The exhibition documents Brancusi´s change toward a personal sculptural idiom.
