Grigore Popescu

Rev. Prof. Dr. Gheorghe Drăgulin June 2011


Masterpiece of Romanian and European art: Lainici, gallery of holiness and ode to Hesychasm (...)Grigore Popescu-Muscel’s talent as a spiritual painter is based not only on personal grace, not only on professionalism, on the processing of precursors’ work, but on knowing and living the Scriptures and also the Orthodox spiritual tradition. (...) One element of his talent, but also of the painter’s theological erudition, is the execution, on same church porch from Lainici, of the cycle of the Philokalia. Here we can see interpolated, with clarity and precision, in chronological order, all Greek, Slavic-Russian and Romanian editions of the great laws of monastic life and meditation.
