Gheorghe M. Tattarescu was one of the most important Romanian painters during the 19th century. His contribution to the history of the Romanian art is also defined by his successful efforts to found, together with Theodor Aman, the first school of fine arts in Bucharest. His artistic activity was paralleled by the painter’s involvement in the national and revolutionary movements of the 19th century.

The Gheorghe M. Tattarescu Memorial Museum was founded in 1951, when Georgeta Wertheimer, the painter’s nice, donated the former house of Tattarescu to the Romanian state. The museum is a valuable stop on the sightseeing tour of Bucharest not only due to the fact it shelters a collection of some of the works of Tattarescu, but also because the building and the adjoining structures stand as a historical architectural complex which dates back to the early 19th century, subsequently altered by Tattarescu himself, after he purchased the house in 1855.
