More than 150 representative works of the great engraver and painter Constantinos Grammatopoulos give the public the opportunity to meet his multilayered body of works spanning from 1930 to 1991.
The exhibition includes the illustrious posters against the Italian invaders that became the reason he got arrested during the occupation, the portraits of important Greek writers (Sikelianos, Palamas, Venezis, Terzakis, and others), the much loved "Spelling Books" of Primary School, the books of several well-known Greek writers such as P. Delta, P. Prevelakis, P. Charis, N. Vrettakos among others with their unrivalled illustrations, the artist’s coloured woodcuts and his oil paintings, revealing through their peculiar representative capacity the work of a pioneer in contemporary art.
Constantinos Grammatopoulos was one of the most important professors at The School of Fine Arts where he created new ways of expression for his students, whilst at the same time he managed to leave his mark on the character of Greek contemporary art.
The exhibition is under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Tourism and the Greek National Tourism Organisation.
