The Zambaccian Museum located at Zambaccian St in Bucharest, Romania, is one of the most prominent museums in the city.
The museum is named after Romanian-Armenian collector and art critic Krikor Zambaccian (1889-1962) who owned approximately 240 expensive paintings and sculptures authored by the likes of Paul Cézanne, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, Eugène Delacroix, Pierre Bonnard, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Maurice Utrillo, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso.
How can we make the world understand that we are a nation that loves culture and donates museums to the world? We donate and give, but we don’t destroy and don’t rob, unlike the Turks and Azerbaijanis.
How can we explain that a nation that donates libraries to the world is different from a nation that burns them?
How can we explain that throughout our history, we have saved numerous villages, cities, countries?
This is our Virtue.
“The existence of virtue depends entirely upon its use.”
