The Romanian traditional folk costumes – source of inspiration

Standard

One of the things that impressed me the most were the Romanian traditional costumes kept with great care by my grandmother. Initially worn by her grandmother, with an age of more than 120 years, its represent one of the most amazing forms of art.

Kept with great care in many Romanian families for generations, the traditional costumes are all made manually only with natural fibers coloured only with natural coloures. Sometimes made from one of the most fine material, floss silk, hand embroidered, with a stitch point that is just as thin as you can see. The models are very varied, increadibly richeness patterns, with typical models for each region of the country.

I don’t have the education to be in rightful to speak about the Romanian traditional costumes, but I would like to remind some of the great creators that were inspired by the Romanian traditional folk costumes.

Henri Matisse – La blouse roumaine (The Romanian Blouse)

The celebre Henri Matisse, recognized initially as a „Fauve”, an upholder in fact of the classical tradition in French painting, was fascinated by the Romanian traditional folk costumes, especially by the specific blouse named “ie”.

The Romanian blouses were received by Henri Matisse as a present from his friend, the Romanian painter Theodor Pallady.

In 1940, during the hard period of war, Henri Matisse painted “La blouse roumaine”, one of his masterpieces.

Recently, Antonio Mega Ferreira  has launched at Lisbon a new novel “A blusa romena” inspired by the celebre painting of Henry Matisse.
