The National Gallery-Museum of Alexander Soutsou and the B & M Theocharakis Foundation present the exhibition “The Human Form in Greek Painting in the 20th Century” at the Foundation’s premises.
Seventy-three unique paintings of modern Greek painting are presented at the exhibition, aimed at highlighting the adventure of the human form in the history of 20th century Greek painting.
This exhibition enables the visitor to see that the human form is artists’ favorite subject throughout the 20th century. This thematic exhibition also allows us to observe the human form’s gradual evolution from academic naturalism and its expressive autonomy, as well as the influence that the pioneering movements of the early 20th century had on contemporary Greek painting.
The exhibition presents works by painters: Simeon Savvides Thalia Flora Karavia, Constantine Parthenis Theophrastus Triantafyllidi Spyros Papaloukas, Otto Pervolaraki, Pericles Byzantium, George Bouziani, Nicholas Ransom, Gerasimos Steris, Tsarouchis Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika, Yannis Moralis, Diamanti Diamantopoulou, Georgiou Vakirtzis, Konstantinos Byzantios, Panagiotis Tetsis, Dimosthenis Kokkinidis, Christou Kara, Giannis Gaitis, Pavlou Dionysopoulos, Dimitris Mytaras, Alekou Fassanou Dagliou, Achilou Magianou, Achilou Magian, Achille the Madeni, Xenofondas BEACH, George et Rorris
