Discover Mogosoaia Palace, built in 1702 by Constantin Brancoveanu (1688 – 1714), the last vallachian prince before Phanariot rule was imposed by the Otoman Empire in Brancovan style that combines old forms of Wallachia with ideas gathered from Constantinopole, Venice or from Baroque Europe. The “Brancovan” style is considered “the first Romanian style” and is also known as the “Renaissance Romanian style”.
The Brancovan style was a combination of Renaissance and Byzantium, Baroque and Orientalism, Baroque opulence and Oriental abstraction, echoes of Western rococo and borrowing of iconographic models from the Balkans or from Russia and Ukraine.
The artistic synthesis patronized by Price Constantin Brancoveanu corresponded visually to the Romanian synthesis in 1700 in wich the inheritance of precursory decades, the appeal to the post-Byzantium Orient, were valorized by a superior understanding of the need for dialogue with the Western world.
