    1937-1943 – She attends the high school courses in Ploieşti and Bucharest. She develops a strong interest in drawing, literature and theatre.

    1944 – One drawing by Geta Comănescu is exhibited within an exhibition hosted by The School of Architecture in Bucharest. Petru Comarnescu (1905-1970, literary critic) writes about this drawing („Cronica plastică”, Revista Fundaţiilor Regale, year XII, no. 8, august 1945). 

    1945-1949 – She enrolls in the Bucharest Faculty of Letters and Philosophy (from 1948 named Faculty of Philology) and in the Bucharest Academy of Fine Arts. Her professors are George Călinescu (1899-1965), a central personality of the interwar literary criticism and painter Camil Ressu (1880-1962). Both Călinescu and Ressu left their traces on Brătescu’s intellectual training by cultivating her taste for the literary scenario, for a theatrical sequentialism and for a praise to the line and its relation to the space.
