Albumul interbelic de arta fotografica Ricordo Di Pompei 32 vedute cuprinde precum spune si titlul 32 de imagini sepia din Pompei. 
Fiecare imagine are pe verso, pe langa denumire,  o descriere in patru limbi, italiana, franceza, engleza si germana.

Coperta rosie elegant decorata este cartonata. Dimensiunea cartilor postale este de 160 mmx 110 mm. La sfarsitul albumului exista o harta a orasului disparut. Se pare ca albumul era folosit ca si ghid pentru turistii care vizitau situl arheologic.

Interwar photography album Ricordo Di Pompei 32 Vedute includes, as the title says 32 sepia images of Pompeii.

Each image has on the back, besides the name, a description in four languages​​, Italian, French, English and German.

Red hard cover is elegantly decorated. Postcards size is 160 mmx 110 mm. At the end of the album there is a map of the  disappeared city. It seems that the album was used as a guide for tourists visiting the archaeological site.

Studii şi cercetări de Istoria Artei

Lucrare publicată sub egida Academiei Republicii Populare Române, secţia Institutul de Istoria Artei şi editată la Editura Republicii Populare Române. Cuvântul introductiv de la inceputul numarului 1-2 din anul 1954 este semnat de academician George Oprescu.
 "Studiile de Istoria Artei in ţara noastră nu s-au făcut in trecut pe baze ştiinţifice. Ceea ce se scria in acest domeniu- monografii de artişti sau chiar lucrări mai vaste privind epoci intregi din evoluţia artei româneşti- avea un caracter individualist, pornea din preferinţa autorului pentru un gen sau altul, pentru o personalitate sau alta, consta dintr-o inlănţuire de impresii şi de aprecieri, ori din inşirări de fapte, fără legături cu fenomenele vieţii noastre politice şi sociale[...]
Odată cu reorganizarea Academiei a luat deci fiinţă şi Institutul de Istoria Artei, mai intâi ca instituţie tutelară şi finanţată de Academie, ca Institut de Istoria Artelor Plastice, cu trei secţiuni, apoi in iunie 1951, ca institut autonom al Academiei, cu cinci secţiuni:
una pentru studiul artei populare, a doua pentru studiul artei din epoca feudală, a treia pentru studiul artei moderne şi contemporane, a patra pentru studiul istoriei teatrului in ţara noastră şi a cincea pentru studiul istoriei muzicii in ţara noastră".

History of Art(2)- Folk Art in Rumania

Books+of+art+carti+History+of+Art+carti+arta
In our culture, the  forms of social life lived by the Rumanian people along history, are clearly reflected by the way in wich dwelling-houses and worship places are located and built. Romanian villages comprising peasants households, with- mostly in Transylvania- a wooden church towering above each of them and standing high upon a hillock, constitute a most interesting rural settlement. The various occupations of the inhabitants led to the establishment of several types of villages situated amid the varied scenery of our country.

The abundance of timber available in the Carpathian regions and in the forests of the North-Danubian plains have offered splendid building material. Necessity and experience enhanced the skill and understanding of deft popular handicraftsmen who built both the dwellings with their outhouses and the churches wich, despite their characteristic features, have several traits in common with the buildings in several neighbouring countries(U.S.S.R., Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary).
Books+of+art+carti+History+of+Art+carti+arta
The dwellings and the wooden churches built on the territory of Rumania belong to the sphere of wood architecture, wich extends over an immense area, its main centers being in the U.S.S.R. and the Carpathians. In wood architecture, the Rumanian dwelling and church of remarkable artistic excellence proper to the Rumanian people, rank very high, owing to certain principles and techniques peculiar to them and to their original style.

On the crests of the Apuseni Mountains in Transylvania, in the deep valleys and on the hill-tops in Northern Moldavia, on the high  plateau in the west Oltenia, villages are scattered about on immense expanses of land. The houses belonging to cattle breeders and to people working in the woods are situated at long long distances one from another. Their pointed, black roofs made of straw or shingles peep out solitarily on all the heights. The household with outhouses stand right in the middle of the plot of land owned by the peasant and are often enclosed like a small wooden fortress designed to defend the cattle and the sheep against the attacks of wild beasts.

In the History of Art and Culture, Folk Art is a genuine chapter based on many worldwide traditional cultures spread on each Continent. History of Art has to be our common treasure meant to keep us close. Art doesn't argue, doesn't cheat, isn't greedy... It's just a proof that we were here.

This album was published in 1955 by The "Publishing House of Romanian Institute for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries".

History of Art(1)- Russian Popular Creation

This art album acquaints the reader with a small part of Russian popular creations.
The Russian forests, stretching along great expanses of the country, have served man since ancient times: they have given him shelter and food, defended him from enemies; everything necessary was made of wood. Being so closely affiliated with the forest, man has learned to make artistic things of wood with great skill.

Beautiful specimens of architectural craftmanship have been well preserved in the North of Russia. Among forests and ravines, on hills and highlands, on the banks of rivers and lakes stand wooden churches.
Some of them- quite small ones - are village chapels; only a tiny dome distingueshes them from an ordinary "izba" (a peasant's cottage). Others, like fantastic giants, tower above the trees and their slender, graceful silhouettes stand out against the luminous sky.

Russian wooden resurrected at present by the careful hands of restorers, has opened up for us a page in the history of art of past times little known till now.
