…Watercolour continues to dominate the nude cycle created by Vasile Movileanu. Returning to his favourite technique of wet on wet, the painter focused on the disposition of moods and actions, offering a wide range of original situations and compositions, the first place is occupied by the human body’s beauty and harmony. From the earliest nudes (Nude, 1999; Morning, Nude reading, Nude on the shore, Nude at the window, 2000) to those created later (Nude in the workshop, 2004; Nude near the pond, Nude with blue fowers, Nude with cello, 2005; Nude in the woods, 2008). Vasile Movileanu remains an artist with an inborn vocation and professional skill, being among the few others who possess the technique of watercolour a complex, virtuous and not at all simple technique.

Vasile Movileanu sees the nude in correlation with nature either with the free forms that are waving and then he places the nude in the perspective of a natural environment or beside a musical instrument, violoncello or violin because the nude suggests that voluptuous feminine arched forms. It is this association of violin and cello with the forms of female nude or even going to the association between a fruit and not every fruit but pears. So this form of a pear we can find in the sculptural adolescent shape.
