Bust of Theodor Aman
The bust of the painter Theodor Aman, work of art of the sculptor Ion Jalea, was cast in bronze in 1962. The bust showing Theodor Aman holding the brush in his right hand and the painting palette in his left hand, is placed in the courtyard in front of the Museum of Art in Craiova, hosted at the Jean Mihail Palace. At the bust base it is engraved: "Theodor Aman 1831-1891" along with the signature of the sculptor. The bust of Theodor Aman was part of the consolidation and restoration project of the Jean Mihail Palace, initiated at the end of 2009. On this occasion, the bust was cleaned and the foundation, the socket and the plywood in travertine were restored.
