Signed and dated lower right "Octav Grigorescu, 1973"
“Dear God, please give me the strength to live in the world of my dreams." As he himself stated, Octav Grigorescu used art as a means of escaping the painful reality. His works are true visual poems, often featuring ethereal figures that are enshrouded in a surreal, oneiric atmosphere. Although he only lived for 54 years, Octav Grigorescu has produced a vast oeuvre that has only partially been revealed until the present moment.
