The Girl at the seaside statue is one the historical monuments of the county of Constanța. This has been executed by the sculptor Cornel Medrea in the year 1691.

Corneliu Virgiliu Medrea (born on the 8th of March 1888, Miercurea Sibiului – deceased on the 25th of July 1964, Bucharest) was a Romanian sculptor and sculpture professor, correspondent member of the Romanian academy.

Cornel Medrea was born in 1888 in the commune Miercurea Sibiului, in a family native from the commune Galda de Jos. After the high school studies at Alba Iulia and at the School of Arts and Crafts from Zlatna, Medrea attends the School of Decorative Art from Budapest (between 1909 – 1912), where he worked with the sculptor György Zala. Between the years 1912 – 1913, he carried on journeys in diverse European countries, visiting the museums of plastic arts.

Starting with 1914, he participates at the Official Saloons from Bucharest, at the expositions of the groups “The artistic youth”, “The Romanian art”, etc. He exhibits at the Biennale from Venice (in the years 1928, 1938, 1956 and 1958) and at many more other artistic manifestations from abroad.
