This work was inspired from Ion Grigorescu's experience with the restoration of paintings in Orthodox churches. As art historian Alina Șerban has asserted, "through its intimate, reflexive essence, Ion Grigorescu's art represents a formidable, unconditioned and uninhibited attempt to visit the Orthodox cultural tradition, to work with the syncretism of concepts." In fact, the artist himself declared in 2009 that: "art considers itself above religion, yet it attempts to fulfil the function of religion."
Ion Grigorescu is one of the most important Romanian artists of the communist period. He was one of the first Romanian conceptual artists and advocates of anti-art, postulating a radical consolidation of artistic activities with quotidian life. He created numerous films, photographic series, as well as drawings and collages that documented both his private life and the transition of Romanian people from life under communist regimes to the realities of capitalism.
