The eclecticism is typical of European art styles of the early classicism, especially in historicism.  In terms of artistic quality a distinction between imitation and artistic development.  must be made. The term eclecticism can have a negative connotation, where the artist, instead of their own creation, selects items from other works and combines them into a new one. The term was already known in antiquity and marked the beginning of our era. At that time there were different schools of philosophy in parallel combining with each other elements and different positions, and thinkers and politician were called eclectic. The most famous representative of this trend was Cicero. He took over, especially in his ethic much of stoics thinking, but he also included the values ​​supported by the Platonic Academy and the Peripatetic school.

Numerous architects, trained in the spirit of eclecticism in Romania have achieved a large number of buildings in this style.  Examples of eclectic architecture are: National Bank Palace (1885) by Cassien Bernard and Albert Galleron Romanian Atheneumn (1888) by Albert Galleron, the Savings Bank (1900) by Paul Gottereau.

The building has three floors, basement, ground floor and first floor, and its facades are organized symmetrically on consoles with floral motifs, after the axis depicted by the entry of the building with steps and columns supporting a balcony above.
