Collection(s)Vladimireşti Monastery was built in the first half of the 20th century. In 1939 the "Izvorul Tămăduirii" Chapel and in 1941 the "Dormition of the Mother of God" Church were added. A capital restoration was performed in 1990. After the completion of the urgent works of reconstructing and refurbishing the monastery, the museum hall was established. Specialists in the field were called in. Thus, the works for reconditioning and restoring about 150 icons began, 106 of which were considered appropriate for the museum. The others adorn rooms of the abbey and priests' home. The refurbishment of the hall went on, by fixing panels covered with cloth on which lie the icons according to a certain classification, small boards with explanations for each icon, and lighting panels with small special reflectors etc. The museum collection includes 106 rare icons dating from the period 1816 - 1920 and are carried out under the influence of the Slavic artistic environment (the Kazan, Ahtîr types etc.), the Russian school (the Vladimir type), the Romanian school (folk style, Baroque style etc.), using the technique of painting on wood and a few silver and brass locks. Beside these icons the museum hall presents a large part of the iconostasis with which the monastery church was endowed in 1941.
