Eustatiu Stoenescu studied at Julian Academy and the National School of Fine Arts in Paris with J. P. Laurens, with whom he collaborated on the execution of upholstery and wall decorations.
Stoenescu painted scenes of genre, landscapes, dead natures, but was especially a virtuoso portraitist, exceptional by the gift of laconic expression and by the abstract, solemn, but not without expressiveness.He was a cosmopolitan, refined and arrogant character.
He got in touch with the paintings at the age of 15, when French painter Leopold Durangel (1828-1898) comes to his father's home to make his mother's portrait.
After visiting the retrospective exhibition Nicolae Grigorescu, opened in 1897 in Bucharest, at the Romanian Athenaeum, it is irreversible to follow the same path.
He went to France together with Nicolae Titulescu and studied art.At the beginning, the subject was Grigorescu's tributary, gradually Stoenescu broke away from any influence and he built a highly personalized style.
