Abgar Baltazar (1880-1909)

Abgar Baltazar (1880-1909) was a Romanian artist of Armenian descent, an intellectual with a solid training, both a painter and a perceptive art critic.His detachment from the influence of Grigorescu's manner of painting is also visible in his ample historical composition We Want Mope's Head, evoking moments of high dramatic intensity inspired from romantic literature.
