Historical paintings unearthed under Târgu Mureș medical school

The dean of George University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Sciences and Technology (UMFST) George Emil Palade in Targu Mures, Professor Leonard Azamfirei, announced on Tuesday, August 9, that during the rehabilitation works done at the university, several highly valuable paintings were discovered, including a life-size representation of Prince of Wallachia, Michael the Brave (Mihai Viteazul).

The university building, which has the status of a historical monument, was originally built between 1906 and 1907, but only came to serve its current purpose in 1945: first as a branch of the Faculty of Medicine of the Bolyai University of Cluj, then from 1948 as the Medical and Pharmaceutical Institute of Târgu Mureș – an independent higher education institution; finally becoming the University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Science, and Technology of Târgu Mureș in 2018.

Currently, the building is being renovated, with the aim of restoring it to the form it was in during the period between 1920 and 1940 when it housed the „Michael the Brave” Military High School.
